Important Contacts

If you, or someone you know, has ever experienced sexual misconduct or relationship violence, Mercer University has made it a priority to provide resources to help. Whether it was last night, several months or years ago, or in your childhood, there are many options for support.

Violence is never the victim’s fault, and it’s okay to reach out for help. What kind of help you choose is up to you. Please know that all support and response services will be sensitive to the needs and privacy of each individual survivor.
