April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month in the United States.
Sexual Violence is a serious issue and concern for our society and our community. If you experience sex or gender discrimination or harassment, you can report to OHSU's Title IX Coordinator. Learn more about Title IX at OHSU here.
Talking about these issues can be difficult, so please reach out to our therapists if you need someone to talk to by calling 503-494-8665, option 1.
