For non-emergencies after hours, you can contact Elon’s SafeLine at 336-278-3333 to get connected to someone on campus, or you can utilize the hotline for The Trevor Project – Call at 1-866-488-7386 or Text the word TREVOR to 1-202-304-1200.

Additionally, Christine Borzumato-Gainey is a member of the Association for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Issues in Counseling, which is a professional association highlighting hot topics and emerging areas facing LGBTQIA students on university campuses.
There will also be a Coming Out Support Group in Fall 2015, and details will be arriving soon!
Additionally, a number of our transgender students have sought additional counseling off-campus, specifically related to topics ranging from gender transition, hormone therapy, and longer-term counseling needs. We would like to offer Tree of Life Counseling as an option devoted to students who may be questioning their gender identity or simply seeking counseling or advice about their ongoing transition.
