SAPAC Peer Led Support Groups

SAPAC’s Peer Led Support Groups (PLSG) are weekly drop-in confidential healing spaces, led by trained student staff members. These groups are open to any University of Michigan students who have experienced sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, or intimate partner violence, who may be looking for a safe space to decompress, process their emotions, do calming arts and crafts, and find community with other students who may have shared experiences.

SAPAC Peer Led Support Group

SAPAC's Peer-led Support Group is a weekly, drop-in, confidential healing space for UM students who identify as survivors of sexual violence, intimate partner violence, sexual harassment, or stalking. The group aims to empower survivors and facilitate resilience, reconnection, stress relief, and anxiety reduction for our participants. We’ll be doing this through semi-structured activities, self-care practices, creative arts, and creating a safe space for sharing if participants choose to do so. Overall, we want to provide a supportive, understanding community that welcomes UM student survivors of all ages, genders, and identities. Activities during the Sunday and Tuesday meetings of each week with be the same, so people have the opportunity to do the activities regardless of which day they can attend.
