Survivor Support Services

Wellness and Health Promotion Services is home to SIU's survivor support program called Confidential Advising Services. Confidential Advising Services is dedicated to providing survivor-centered assistance to SIU students that have experienced sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking. Our goal is to help survivors find the support, resources and information they need to safely continue their studies. If you are a friend or loved one of a survivor, information on what you can do to help is also available.

Any currently enrolled SIU student that has experienced sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking can get help from a Confidential Advisor.
