Yale has many sexual misconduct response resources. Not sure where to begin? SHARE is a great place to start. Call, drop in, email, or schedule an appointment to be connected with our professional staff. We can walk you through your options, including Title IX, the University Wide Committee on Sexual Misconduct (UWC), Yale Police Department, and other campus resources. SHARE counselors are also knowledgeable about resources in the New Haven community, such as the HOPE Family Justice Center.
SHARE offers information, training, workshops and other educational services on a variety of topics related to sexual misconduct, relationships and sexuality, and resources. For example, our staff has provided programming around helping a friend, healthy relationships and boundaries, self-care and -compassion, sexual health, and more. We are also available to work with you to create programs tailored to the specific needs and interests of your organization, group, or department.
Finally, please feel free to visit the lending library in our waiting area, which is comprised of a variety of resources on topics related to sexual misconduct.
SHARE can facilitate access to general mental health services and medical care, including accompaniment to the emergency room for evidence collection, help with initiating a complaint process or filing a police report, and court-based advocacy. When requested, SHARE staff works closely with Title IX coordinators, the UWC, the Yale Police Department, and other campus resources to best address the needs of community members dealing with sexual misconduct. We may also be able to facilitate expedited appointments with other departments at Yale Health, such as OB/GYN or Student Medicine, in acute situations.
SHARE offers a number of on-going support options for Yale undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. SHARE’s professional counselors are able to meet with individuals for one-time consultations, ongoing counseling, or on an as-needed basis. The center also offers two support groups, Survivor Support Network (SSN) for undergraduates and Creating Space: Fostering Post-Traumatic Growth through Creativity and Community for graduate and professional students.
For non-student members of the Yale community, including faculty and staff, SHARE is available for crisis support and consultation and will then facilitate a referral to the appropriate on-going counseling resource, as needed.
All contact with SHARE is confidential and can be anonymous if you wish.
