As part of the university’s Breaking the Silence campaign, the university has a new permanent Sexual Assault and Harassment Advisor (SAHA). You can go to the SAHA if you’ve experienced any form of sexual violence, including harassment and stalking, recently, or in the past. It doesn’t matter who perpetrated it or whether it happened while you were at University or not, you are welcome to access the service for emotional and practical support. The advisor will discuss your experiences with you, help develop positive coping strategies, work on issues relating to self-esteem and trust, and provide impartial information on your options, whether that be about reporting or about further support that’s available to you. Any student of the University can access SAHA support. If you’d like to know more, visit this link:
