Sexual Assault

What To Do If You Are Raped

  • Go to a safe place as soon as you can.
  • Try to preserve all physical evidence. Do not bathe, shower, douche, use the toilet, brush teeth, or change your clothing.
  • Contact a close friend who can be with you until you feel safe again. Your friend can also accompany you to the medical exam.
  • Get medical attention as soon as possible to make sure that you are physically okay and to collect and preserve evidence.
  • Contact the police. Rape is never your fault – it’s a crime. You are encouraged to report it.
  • Seeing a counselor is important to help you understand your feelings and begin the process of resolution and healing.
  • Please know you will feel less alone and more in control as you learn your resources and reach out for help.
