Counseling Connections

There are several free, confidential counseling options available to Northwestern students who have experienced sexual violence, relationship violence, or stalking. These organizations are not required to report sexual assault incidents to law enforcement officials. Counselors can listen and help someone work through any anger, pain, sadness, relationship issues or negative coping mechanisms that may be related to their experience. It is never too late to get counseling, even months or years later.

If you would like to learn more about counseling and other options available, you can talk to a CARE advocate confidentially.
