Different from a purely self-help or purely therapeutic group, this psycho-educational group is co-facilitated by experts in the field of sexual violence support and response.
PEGaSUS offers…
• a supportive space open to all genders of students who have experienced adult sexual assault
• a safe space to connect with others through mutual support and group education
• an opportunity to recognize your strengths, build resilience, and work towards self empowerment


"I was worried about comint to group, but as soon as I came I felt welcomed and understood, without even having to say anything."

"Being part of a group has provided me with the change to open up about my assault and learn how to heal. I feel like I am learning how to live again alongside my lovely ladies."

"Talking, connecting, hurting, and healing with others who understand and are on the same journey."

"I have had the privilege to learn from - and heal with - an extrodinary group of young women. Moving forward I will carry their strength with me."

"Group therapy has been an important system for me and I'm so glad i had the opportunity to meet people who have shared my experiences."
