Providing long-term support

Provide long-term support to victims/survivors through university services and/or through referals to external community-based agencies.

Participants in the CAPSAP study expressed that short-term support would not be sufficient to meet the mental health needs that can result from experiences of sexual violence. To address this concern, universities should ensure that long-terms supports are available to student survivors, whether directly through campus services or through referals to external providers engaged free of charge to students.
