If you are in immediate danger, call 911

Your safety is important. Are you in a safe place? If you’re not feeling safe, consider reaching out to someone you trust for support. If you are in immediate danger or seriously injured, call 911.

Your health is important. Are you injured? Take care of your health by getting a free Forensic Exam (see below) and/or accessing other medical services for STI and pregnancy prevention.

Your mental health is important. Consider talking to an Advocate, counselor, or a trusted friend for support and to think through your options.

Consider reporting. Preserve any evidence. Avoid showering, brushing, bathing or douching; if possible, avoid eating or drinking water if you intend upon having a Forensic Exam to collect evidence.

Please note: medical providers in California are mandated to report sexual violence to law enforcement. If you need medical treatment but do not want law enforcement involved, be mindful of what you disclose. For more information, call the 24-hour hotline at 805-620-4676 and ask to speak to an Advocate.
