Confidential Resources at MIT

Confidential Resources at MIT

In addition to reporting options, MIT has designated confidential resources at MIT. You can speak with these resources regardless of your decision to report.

 

Offices designated “confidential” will not report any information to the IDHR Office. These conversations are kept strictly confidential and, except in rare, extreme circumstances (including imminent risk of harm to self or others), nothing will be shared without your permission.  For more information about confidential, private, and community-based resources, see Supportive Measures.
