How Can We Help (Plain Text)

This infographic has a purple and teal color scheme. The title reads “How Can We Help?” with a description underneath reading “After a harmful incident, you may find yourself needing support in many ways. Here are some resources that may be helpful to you.” 

There is a picture of the caduceus, a medical logo with two snakes wrapped around a staff, off to the side. The first section is Medical Support. There are two main boxes under this subtitle. The first reads “UVA Medical Center Emergency Department: 1215 Lee Street, Charlottesville. (434) 924-2231. Open 24/7.” The second says “Elson Student Health Center: 400 Brandon Ave., Charlottesville. (434) 924-5362.” Below those boxes is another box that reads “Both of these facilities can assess and care for any injuries and physical trauma. Additionally, you an request an examination from a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE).” The next box gives more detail on SANE nurses: “SANE Nurses can assess injuries related to physical trauma; evaluate for sexually-transmitted infections and possible pregnancy; provide medical care (including medications to prevent infections and pregnancy); and can, within the first 120 hours (five days) after a sexual assault, administer a ‘forensic exam.’ All evidence can be documented and collected. You are not required to report an incident to law enforcement in order to require medical care, but evidence from SANE exams can be stored for up to two years in the event that you decide to take legal action.”

The next section is titled “Support Through Law Enforcement,” and includes an image of balanced scales within a wreath. The first box in this section says “It is up to you to decide to get police involved in how you receive support. Law enforcement will never become involved without your xsonsense unless there is a significant threat to your immediate safety.” The next box reads “UVA police officer Ben Rexrode can help you discuss safety-planning and resources. You are not obligated to file a report if you meet with him, he can be directly contacted at [email protected]. Law enforcement can also help in discussing reporting options and seeking a protective order.” The third box in this section, at the bottom of the first page, reads “Depending on where the incident occured, it may fall under a different jurisdiction than the University Police Department (UPD). The UPD, Charlottesville Police, or Albemarle County Police may be best suited to work with you.”

The third section is titled “Confidential Counseling”. The picture for this section is an open, outstretched hand, with flowers floating in/above it. The first box in this section reads “Confidential employees can offer support and are not required to report what you tell them to the University. This is because their professional license requires that they keep information confidential.” The next box says “The full list of confidential resources can be found at this link Many students choose to seek confidential counseling through CAPS or the Women’s Center.”

The final section is titled “Academic Support” and includes clipart of books, both closed and open. The box in this section says “If you think academic flexibility could be helpful for you, ODOS can contact your academic dean to request accommodations. They will not disclose any specific information about your situation, but will say that there are pressing circumstances. You can reach out to ODOS if you would like to explore this option further."
