Moving to End Sexual Assault (MESA) is a not-for-profit program of Mental Health Partners (MHP) and has served as the sexual violence resource center for Boulder County since 1972. MESA assists people who have experienced sexual violence by providing information about legal support, medical care, counseling referrals, and other community resources. MESA offers a 24-hour hotline, as well as in-person advocacy during criminal justice proceedings and at the hospital during forensic evidence collection with Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANEs).
Additionally, MESA provides group training and prevention education in the community through programs aimed at empowering participants to lead in the transformation of our current culture, which normalizes and encourages sexual violence. The goal of MESA’s prevention education is to prevent sexual violence from occurring by creating a culture based on consent, safety, and respect.
MESA offers support groups, trauma-informed yoga, and AcuDetox to aid in healing. Call the 24-hour hotline at 303-443-7300 to reach a trained advocate by phone or text the word ‘BRAVE’ to 20121.
