CONSIDER SEEKING COUNSELING OR OTHER SUPPORT: UMHB recommends that you consider seeking counseling as soon as possible. The university believes strongly in supporting victims whether or not they decide to file a criminal report.
Therapy provides a safe place to talk about your feelings and concerns. If you decide to keep the matter confidential, a licensed counselor must respect your wishes.
The following services are available on campus or in the community to support victims of sexual assault and violence:
- UMHB Student Counseling Center (254) 295-4696
