Get confidential support as a survivor of sexual misconduct, including sexual violence, dating or domestic violence, stalking, or sexual harassment, or harassment based on gender identity or sexual orientation.

It can be hard to ask for help, but in reality, that's where the healing begins. Whether you're looking for a non-judgmental and caring person to meet with, a hotline for 24-hour support, or medical care, we have you covered.

See the local resources available to you below.

Professional advocate & case manager

Kate Suazo

Discuss and process instances of sexual misconduct with a trained professional in a safe, confidential space. You may not know if your experience “counts” as sexual misconduct, you may be concerned about the impact of talking about it, or you may want assistance with next steps. Your session is confidential so any action you wish to take, including making a report, is up to you. Find support and create a plan to move forward in safety and healing. Read about our Survivor Support Fund.

This service is completely free.

Call the FLC Counseling Center at 970-247-7212 to schedule an appointment with Kate.

Medical care

You may need more than someone to talk with following an incident of sexual misconduct. In many cases, survivors may benefit from medical care, STI testing, and evidence collection. As an FLC student you have two key medical resources available to you: the FLC Health Center, and Mercy Regional Medical Center.

FLC Health Center

Use the FLC Health Center when you are strictly seeking medical care. You'll find inclusive and collaborative health care to support you in your healing.

Call (970) 247-7355 to schedule an appointment or drop in during business hours at 170 Skyhawk Station.

Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE)

Forensic nurse exam

SANE is Mercy Regional Medical Center's forensic nurse exam. You can get medical care, STI testing, and evidence collection through this program. FLC Police can transport you to Mercy and funds are available to pay for the exam. You can choose to receive care anonymously and without making a report to law enforcement.
