Sexual Assault SafeLine

The Sexual Assault SafeLine (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 help you arrange for transportation if you need medical care, and can also arrange for an advocate to accompany you to the hospital if you wish.

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 shortly. The service is available to full time Homewood students and Peabody students. (See below for other resources if you are not a full time Homewood or Peabody student.)

EMERGENCIES:

If you are in danger, call 911.

You may also call Hopkins Security Student Liaison Officer Sherry Batista (443-890-0871) to learn about contacting and pursuing actions through local law enforcement or Hopkins Security at 410-516-7777 for officer assistance (your call will be recorded).
