If a friend discloses to you that they have experienced sexual misconduct, the most important thing you can do is listen and validate how they are feeling. Ensure they are physically safe and help them access medical attention or other supportive resources, if needed. You can always utilize the confidential services of the Student Wellness and Counseling Center to talk through how you can best support your friend. It can be very overwhelming to help someone navigate these issues, so remember to take care of yourself, too.
