1.
Be Safe

Your safety comes first and foremost. It can be difficult to make decisions that match your needs after experiencing physical or emotional harm. The following tips provide a general framework for safety. Please contact SHARE to develop a personalized safety plan.

Physically:  Create distance from the person attempting to harm you or who has harmed you.  Stay clear of rooms or places where weapons may be accessible (kitchen, garage, lab) to minimize the chance of being injured.  Go to a public, secure, or “secret” location as soon as possible.  Consider going to a library, dining hall, friend’s room, professional resources (like the LGBT Center, Carl A. Fields Center, and Women*s Center), and/or confidential resources.

Emotionally:  Tell the person to stop, or choose not to respond to hurtful or alarming communication that is made verbally or through electronic means. Consider documenting (rather than deleting) the communication in a secure electronic file or location (such as an external hardrive). Give yourself a break from thinking about it, knowing the evidence will be available when you are ready to seek help.

Medically:  Medical care is most effective when administered promptly. If you are injured or worry you have been exposed to health risks (such as sexually transmitted infections or pregnancy), consider seeking medical attention from an on-campus or community provider as soon as possible.
