You may wish to speak to someone before making a report e.g. a friend or family member or someone from Gifu-city. The person you speak to can also help make a report if that is something you choose to do.
There are also a number of services and people who can support you along the path to recovery from sexual assault. If you are not sure what to do you can talk to someone from one of the free and confidential services listed on this page. In addition, Gifu-city has trained First Responders that you can speak to in a number of Faculties and in student services. First Responders understand that reporting sexual misconduct can be difficult. They are not counsellors but they are trained to provide an appropriate initial response to your concerns and guide you to the right services. See further support on the Sexual Misconduct page.
