The University of Michigan is launching a care team for student survivors of sexual assault and harassment

ANN ARBOR – A new initiative launched at the University of Michigan to help student victims and survivors of sexual assault, sexual harassment, abuse, intimate partner violence, and stalking come to terms with their experiences.

The Survivor Care Team was founded in April and is a collaboration between the UM Center for Prevention and Awareness Raising of Sexual Assault and the counseling and psychological services.

According to its website, the care team takes a holistic approach to healing and offers individual support plans that can cover therapy, support or therapy groups and advocacy.

To access the nursing team, students can visit either the SAPAC or CAPS offices.

“Whatever works for you, seek help,” the website says. “We offer empathy, validation, and support, and if you want, we can work with you to create a plan that feels right for your specific healing journey. If you want to revise the plan at any time, this is not a problem. “

The SAPAC and CAPS offices are located in the Michigan Union at 530 S. State Street.
