If s/he does not wish to seek services, it is helpful to remind them that being examined by a medical professional can help protect against sexually transmitted infections, pregnancy, and other concerns. You also can share that a proper medical examination can help preserve evidence, should s/he decide to pursue prosecution.
Because the survivor has been through such a traumatic event, s/he may struggle with talking about the event, remembering details, etc., in a way that is different from victims of other types of crime. Do not insist or demand information from the survivor, as s/he may not be comfortable disclosing such information to you. Document the information s/he provides to you in the Campus Security Authority reporting form.
