Most educational institutions offer tools to report sexual violence and give mental health support. Unfortunately a lot of these tools are impractical and hard to find.
When there is a case of sexual violence the aim is to offer the victim the easiest and quickest way to get support and report the case. In most educational institutions you will find a web-form and telephone number on their website but usually it isn’t easy to find.
The other issue is that most victims of sexual violence are psychologically traumatised and will not take the time or have the inclination to find the right page on the website, fill in a series of web forms, send them in and wait for someone to call them back.
This is also applicable to students seeking mental health support but are too embarrassed to come forward.
