Resources for Former Patients of Health Center Gynecologist
RSVP’s mission is to provide support, connect students to resources, and provide education about gender-based harm and violence. Below are resources available to students impacted by allegations regarding the former gynecologist including counseling; reporting options; community resources; and student activism opportunities.
Mental Health Support
For Current Students:
Individual counseling: we offer individual services in the form of consultations, counseling, crisis, and resource review where we educate students on their options and accommodations available to them. Students may contact Student Counseling Services or Relationship and Sexual Violence Prevention and Services office.
Group support: there is a Former Patients Support Group, for current USC students impacted by the former gynecologist. The drop-in group is held weekly on Thursdays 4pm-5pm. There is no need to sign up or sign in for the group, nor are students required to attend weekly. Students do not need to pay the Summer Student Health Fee to participate in this group.
Crisis services: call Student Counseling at (213) 740-7711, and RSVP at (213) 740-4900, 24/7 to speak with a licensed mental health professional.
Non-USC counseling: Free, confidential non-USC counseling support is available. Please visit the Resources for Student Health Center for comprehensive information on reporting and support options both through USC and non-USC entities.
For former students:
Free, confidential non-USC counseling support is also available. Please visit the Resources for Student Health Center page for comprehensive information on reporting and other support options both through USC and non-USC governing bodies.
The Resources for Student Health Center page for comprehensive information on reporting and support options both through USC and non-USC entities. Compliance will accept anonymous reports as well.
USC Student Health is committed to its care to students. For any other feedback or concerns, students can use the Tell Us What You Think feedback link on the student health center website. These complaints are reviewed by the center but more importantly also forwarded to Keck’s Risk Management office, who students may also wish to contact directly. Reports to student health and to Keck Risk management can be anonymous. The Office of Equity and Diversity is another reporting option for faculty or staff misconduct toward students.
There are several community resources that regularly collaborate with RSVP and work with our students. Peace Over Violence, the Center for the Pacific Asian Family and the Santa Monica Rape Treatment Center provide a range of services including counseling, groups, legal services, and advocacy and support with reporting.
