Support Resources for Students
The Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center takes a trauma-informed approach to our work to support survivors of sexual assault and everyone in the community impacted by it. As our colleagues in EOCR/Title IX review the interim guidance issued today, we encourage students with questions or concerns to reach out for assistance. We also stand with all of our students working to create a respect culture on Grounds and across the world.
At the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center, we provide counseling services for the University community, and the Charlottesville community. We offer one time consultation services for anyone who feels the need to discuss concerns or reactions to events in the news. If you feel a consultation or counseling might be helpful, please call our counseling line at (434) 982-2252, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and we will be glad to respond. If you feel you are in crisis, however, please do not leave a message as it is important to seek immediate help. Instead please call 911, walk in to the UVA Emergency Room, or call Region Ten Crisis at (434) 972-1800. UVA students can also walk in to CAPS, or call (434) 243-5150 (after hours, (434) 972-7004).
