MU Still CARES: Support During Remote Learning

 

During this time of social distancing, the CARE Initiative at Manchester University wants to acknowledge that “home” is not always the safest place for all people. Statistically, we know that rates of domestic violence increase during moments of crisis, such as what we are facing today. If you are currently being subjected to violence (physical, sexual, mental, emotional, financial, etc.), have been subjected to violence in the past, or you are a secondary survivor due to the violence experienced by a friend or loved on, please know that you still have resources. 

 

Ongoing support resources:

Please visit CARE’s resources page to see what confidential resources are available to you. Despite which campus you are on, you will find on-campus and off- campus resources that are available to you.

The hotline is staffed by trained volunteers and professional counselor/advocates, offering support to LGBTQ & HIV-affected survivors of any type of violence, as well as to those who love and support survivors (this includes if you lost a loved one to violence).
