Professional counselors at Counseling, Health and Wellness provide free, confidential services to students regarding sexual assault and sexual misconduct. Professional counselors will maintain a summary of the incident for record keeping but will not share the victim's/survivor’s name without their permission. Professional counselors are available to assist victims/survivors in a crisis situation and provide information about options, including medical assistance, psychological counseling, University disciplinary action, and legal prosecution. Professional counselors can provide safe, confidential support during this difficult period and can inform students of common reactions to crises and discuss coping methods that may assist students immediately following a sexual assault and/or other sexual misconduct and after. Talking about concerns with one of these counselors may help students sort through feelings and decide what to do. An individual appointment with a counselor may be made by contacting Counseling, Health and Wellness at 617-573-8226 or the victim/survivor may be seen without an appointment at 10am, 11am, 12pm or 1pm Monday through Friday.
