Sexual Assault Helpline

The Sexual Assault Helpline (410-516-7333) is a confidential service of the Johns Hopkins University Counseling Center. Trained professional counselors are available to offer support, provide resources or answer questions 24/7. A counselor can try to help you arrange for transportation if you need medical care.

This line is regularly monitored by our on-call counselors, so if you reach an answering machine you may leave your first name and telephone number and the on-call counselor will call you back as soon as possible. The Helpline service is available to all Johns Hopkins University students.
