Michigan's Sexual Assault Hotline
If you or a loved one has experienced a sexual assault, you may want to talk with someone. Michigan's Sexual Assault Hotline has trained advocates available to listen without judgment and offer support to you 24/7.
The hotline is confidential. This means that we will not share your information. It is also anonymous. You don't have to share your name or personal information. The information that you do share with us, stays with us.
If your experience of sexual violence was 4 hours ago or 40 years ago, we are available to listen to you. We offer immediate crisis counseling and referrals to local service providers - regardless of your identity.
Safety Concerns with the Michigan Behavioral Health Standard Consent Form (MDHHS-5515): What if I Have Experienced Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, or Stalking?
Because many people have more than one health care provider, systems for sharing information among providers have been developed to prevent mistakes, coordinate care, and save time and money. Although sharing health information among care providers has many benefits, it may also present safety risks for people who have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault, and/or stalking. If you have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault, and/or stalking, this document can help you talk with your health care provider about your situation, so that you can arrive at an informed choice about sharing your health information with other care providers. These questions also contain information about resources for advocacy, safety consultation, and other forms of support.
