If you’ve been assaulted, or have experienced threatening or inappropriate behaviour as a member of the RMIT community, we can help you.
What happens when you contact us
We will listen
We will ask you about your circumstances and concern/s and listen to what you have to say.
We will ask you what you think will help you
In order to help, we need to understand what’s important to you. You don’t have to come up with a solution yourself, but we do need to know your priorities so we can give you the right advice. e.g. “I want to feel safe when I come to class”.
We will explain and explore options
It’s up to you to decide which option is most appropriate for you. We will tell you what options are available, how they might help and what each path would look like for you. Sometimes we will need to take steps to ensure the safety of our community. We will always discuss this with you.
We will develop an approach to the issue that considers your wellbeing
We will always consider your wellbeing in any options we propose.
It’s okay if your circumstances change and you no longer need or want our help. If there are steps we need to take to ensure the safety of our community we will discuss these with you.
