Anyone at Western may receive a disclosure about sexual violence. The assistance that you will be able to provide to a survivor/victim of sexual violence will depend on the nature, timing, and ongoing effects of the incident(s).

If you receive a disclosure in the immediate time period following an assault (within approximately 72 hours of the incident):

If a survivor of sexual violence turns to you for support

If you learn that an individual is being harassed
