Break the Silence.
Stop Sexual Violence.

SART Program




  • MCASA assists in building capacity, training, and providing technical assistance to Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner/Sexual Assault Response Teams (SANE/SART) across the state.
  • The SANE/SART teams consist of local sexual assault programs, law enforcement, medical professionals, advocates, social workers, and prosecutors from various counties around the state. SANE/SARTs meet to identify gaps in services and to discuss specific sexual assault issues in cases and how to better serve victims of sexual assault.
  • During the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) training the multi-disciplinary teams assist in training medical professionals on a standard model of care for sexual assault victims and conduct a mock trial demonstrated with nurses as expert witnesses, real prosecutors and judges in a real court room setting with a judge presiding.
  • MCASA has a nine year relationship with the multidisciplinary team approach and has recently assisted Meridian/Lauderdale, Columbus, Neshoba, and Pike counties with the development of SARTs in the community.
