Tip of the week #5: Bystander Intervention

sayAn active bystander speaks up or calls attention to an issue that doesn’t seem right. You are often the first to see any concerning behavior, so if you “See Something, Say Something.” This can prevent various types of sexual misconduct and identify behavioral changes, stress, suicidal actions, or depression. If you have seen something concerning, please file an online report at www.nvcc.edu/novacares. For more information or assistance contact NOVA Sexual Assault Services at NOVA.SAS@nvcc.edu or call 703.338.0834. If someone is in immediate danger call 9-1-1 or NOVA Police at 703.764.5000.
