Anyone over 18 years old who has experienced sexual violence in their life is invited to participate in Copper Country Safe Space. College Community Safe Space is for current college students who have experienced sexual violence in their life.
We cap participation at 15 people per group meeting.
Our groups are run by trained Victim Services staff from Dial Help. They ensure the comfort and safety of all participants, facilitate discussion, and present materials to spark conversation.
To ensure confidentiality and safety for all participants, we are asking that people register in order to receive an invitation to join the online meeting. This helps prevent people from crashing or otherwise disrupting the group. To register, contact Paige at 906-482-9077 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The only information we are collecting is an email address where we can send the invitation. No identifying information about participants, including the email address used to register, will be stored or shared with any person, organization, or entity. We also require participants to adhere to our guidelines. Participants agree to prevent other people from seeing or hearing the meeting and to never record or screen capture the meeting.
No! You can choose to share your webcam or not. You can also choose to assign yourself whatever name you are comfortable with. We encourage people to include their pronouns with their name, if they are comfortable.
No, children are not permitted to attend these support groups. Research shows that having children present while people are processing trauma may not be healthy for them. Additionally, not everyone feels comfortable discussing their trauma in front of other people’s children, so their presence may be disruptive. Because of this, we cannot allow children in group. Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause!
No. Counseling or therapy is a specific type of mental health treatment facilitated by trained and licensed mental health providers. Support groups are led by experienced staff members who are trained to facilitate a group of peers to share their experiences, process their feelings, practice new skills, and support one another in a safe and collaborative environment.
