The most important thing is support

I feel like the most important thing is more support for the victim, because at some point, they don't even want somebody to be touching them. They just want somebody to be listening to them, and telling them that "It is fine. You're okay. You're not different just because this happened."


  • Use approaches that are trauma informed and survivor-centred.

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