The Respect Program

The Respect Program‘s mission is to engage the Emory community to prevent and respond to sexual assault and relationship violence.  We are a part of the Office of Health Promotion  in Emory University’s Division of Campus Life. Learn more about the Respect Program; how to get help or support a loved one or student; the issues of sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking; and how to get involved by navigating through the options on the left side of the screen.

If you are a survivor of sexual violence or someone supporting a survivor and would like free and confidential support or to discuss other options, you can reach the Respect Program’s advocate, Wanda Swan, directly at 404-727-7388.

If you would like schedule free, confidential mental health counseling, or therapy, with Emory’s Counseling and Psychological Services (also known as CAPS) you can reach them directly at 404-727-7450.  CAPS is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5 pm and students in crisis can walk-in and ask to speak to the counselor-on-call.  CAPS is located at 1462 Clifton Road in suite 235.

For assistance after-hours, and you are in crisis, contact Student Intervention Services by calling 404-430-1120.”
