Emory Student Health Services, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), and the Office of Health Promotion are inclusive with safe space trained staff. The Respect Program, which works to prevent and respond to sexual assault and relationship violence, is inclusive of all people and relationships as well.

The Office of LGBT Life maintains an ongoing working relationship with CAPS. Two CAPS liaisons meet regularly with our staff. The current CAPS liaisons are Barbara Emmanuel (barbara.emmanuel@emory.edu) and Sadie Forsythe (sadie.forsythe@emory.edu). Feel free to make an appointment with CAPS and request someone who Safe Space trained.

Sexual health supplies for all students are available in the Office of LGBT Life as well as Student Health. Confidential HIV testing is available in Student Health.

Emory's Respect program created a guide titled "Sexual Assault & Relationship Violence & the LGBTQ Community." This guide aims:
1. To describe the unique issues faced by LGBT-identified survivors of assault
2. To teach advocates how they can support survivors
3. To display facts about hate violence towards the LGBTQ community.
4. To provide resources to an LGBTQ-identified survivor
5. To help abusers understand how to avoid abusive behavior
