Dr. Dusty JohnstoneHow We Can Help 

If you have had an unwelcome experience of a sexual nature or been harmed by sexual violence you deserve support. It doesn’t matter when the harm occurred. It doesn’t matter.

If you aren’t sure what you should do or where you should go please reach out to us! We are here to listen, discuss options, and support you in caring for yourself. 

We are here to support students, staff, and faculty. We can also provide guidance if you are looking for information on how to support someone else.


Some Things We Can Help With: 

  • Thinking through your options

  • Problem solving (we do a lot of this!)

  • Coordinating accommodations 

  • Identifying other services and supports that might be helpful

  • Make referrals to counselling or healthcare providers

  • Safety planning 

  • Reporting and navigating institutional procedures 

If you would like to know more about us, please visit our About page. If you would like to contact you can use our Contact Form or email us at svsupport@uwindsor.ca One of us (Dusty or Anne) will be in touch soon!

What Are My Reporting Options?

Reporting is a very personal decision. We will help provide you with the information you need to make the decision that is best for you and will assist you with the process if you choose to go ahead. Please visit our Report page for more info.

Where Can I Get Medical Care?

If you have been recently assaulted you may have injuries or want to be tested for STIs or pregnancy. You may also want to consider a forensic medical exam (informally known as a rape kit) that would collect evidence. Note that evidence can sometimes be collected up to 12 days after an assault. Please refer to our Connect to Services page for more detailed information.
