SEXUAL ASSAULT SURVIVOR'S SUPPORT LINE & LEADERSHIP

SASSL exists to provide unbiased and non-judgmental peer support and referrals to survivors of sexual violence. We provide a 24 hour crisis line during the school year and walk-in support at our Student Centre office, in addition to educational outreach programs and information sessions on the York University campus and in the GTA.

Most sexual assaults are committed by someone we know. Whether it’s recent or it happened a long time ago, being at school can bring up issues about sexual assault. Luckily, the campus has several resources that can help you.

University is the perfect place to make friends and build new memories, but just remember: No matter how much you drink, what you’re wearing, or “how far you go” with someone,

NO still means NO!

Please note our crisis line will be closed during the summer, from May to August. SASSL’s Crisis Line will re-open in September 2014! If you are experiencing a crisis, please call the following help lines that pertain to your situation:

 

Toronto Rape Crisis Line / Multi Cultural Women Against Rape

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Two-Spirit, or Queer Youth Under 26
