Talk to a Confidential Advocate

As the confidential advocate from the Advocacy Center of Winona, Destiny offers free and confidential services to WSU students.

This means that what you choose to share and discuss with Destiny, stays with Destiny.

Talk About Options

As a confidential resource on campus, Destiny can help you explore your options without or before making an official report.

When you meet with the advocate, they will 

  • Listen without judgement
  • Explain all of the options available to you
  • Help you understand the potential outcomes of each option 

After you decide which option is best for you, Destiny will provide guidance, resources, and referrals.

Reach Out for Support

Contact the Advocacy Center of Winona by email at or telephone at 507.452.4440. 

If you are in crisis, please use the 24-hour free and confidential hotline at 507.452.4453.

If you have an emergency and you are comfortable doing so, please call 911.

More Campus Support Options

Many of these services are by appointment only. Additionally, it is your right to have a support person with you when you speak to or meet with Title IX and/or security. 

If you would like help making an appointment, or you would like a support person, please contact the Advocacy Center of Winona.
