What should I do if I suspect a sexual assault has occurred to another person?

You can call STSM to find out how you can help the survivor. It’s important that survivors make their own choices to pursue medical care or report to law enforcement. The most important thing you can do for a survivor is to believe their story. You don’t have to investigate the case or convict the assailant.

If you suspect that a child or vulnerable adult is being abused, please contact STSM at (803) 790- 8208 immediately so we can make a mandated report to the appropriate authorities.
