  • Most services are free or include a minimal charge.
  • If there is a potentially  life threatening injury we will assist getting you to an emergency room.
  • Forensic evidence can be collected within 120 hours or 5 days of an assault. If you choose to not report, forensic evidence will be collected anonymously and held for 60 years. You may choose to report in that time.
  • The SANE program works with PSU campus advocates who are available to support you through the SANE process and ensure your access to support services on and off campus.
