We assist individuals who are dealing with current/recent and past experiences, as well as offer support to those who may experience something indirectly such as supporting friends, family or loved ones or witnessing something of concern.

SHARE provides crisis support, advocacy, and referral to on-going care for all members of the Yale community. We also offer on-going therapy and supportive counseling for students (undergraduate, graduate, and professional) focused on processing issues related to sexual misconduct. We offer a variety of groups, including Trauma-Informed Yoga for Survivors and a general survivor support group.

Additionally, we have resources for individuals who may have concerns about their own behavior or be mandated for training after being found responsible of a sexual misconduct violation. Currently, these services are provided through the Conduct Awareness Training Program (, an active psychoeducation program that provides educational information and opportunities for self- reflection in order to promote participants' understanding and empathy related to sexual behavior, including an examination of broader relationship patterns and dynamics.
