The DoD Safe Helpline app gives members of the military community access to resources and tools to help manage the short- and long-term effects of sexual assault. The app helps you create a plan that is right for you, from exercises that aid in reducing stress to tools to help you transition to civilian life. You can even store your customized plans and exercises so you can refer back to them at any time. The app has four sections:
FIND SUPPORT: Get live 1-on-1 help from trained sexual assault professionals — by phone or through an anonymous online chat session. You can also find nearby resources to help you through your military-to-civilian transition.
LEARN: Receive guidance on what to do if someone you know is sexually assaulted and learn about the many effects of sexual assault. If you’re currently separating from Service, you’ll also find a comprehensive list of benefits and services that you may be eligible to receive.
PLAN: Access non-medical, short-term support options and create a customized self-care plan to address feelings of sadness, anxiety and disconnection.
EXERCISE: Use these guided, easy-to-follow techniques to help reduce anxiety and stress that may result from sexual assault. The exercises can be used in private, marked as “favorites” and replayed as often as needed.
