Mental Health Resources
Kappa Alpha Theta aims to increase the dialogue around and support for all aspects of mental health. As an organization, our goals include creating a safe environment for members to discuss mental health issues, encouraging members to recognize when someone might benefit from mental health support, and supporting members facing mental health challenges and conditions.

Statement on Sexual Assault & Gender-Based Violence
Kappa Alpha Theta is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment free from sexual assault and gender-based violence. Kappa Alpha Theta condemns and will not tolerate sexual assault and/or gender-based violence, as such behavior is not in alignment with our values, adversely impacts our members, and violates expectations of membership. We believe Kappa Alpha Theta members have a role to play in addressing and preventing sexual assault and gender-based violence by:
- Supporting survivors of sexual misconduct and sexual violence;
- Committing to engaging members in prevention and intervention efforts;
- Not supporting events contributing to the objectification/sexualization of groups of people, including women, or the reinforcement of restrictive gender roles;
- Working to connect members to resources to prevent sexual misconduct and sexual violence, as well as resources for those members who are survivors of interpersonal violence; and
- Partnering with subject matter experts to provide education, engage in prevention efforts, and serve as catalysts for change within chapters’ campus/communities on an ongoing, regular basis.
