DoD Safe Helpline

If you are a member of the DoD community affected by sexual assault, you can chat online with a trained staff member who can provide confidential crisis support. If you are in immediate danger, please call 911.


Your privacy and safety are crucial. You may use Safe Helpline anonymously. However, if you are using a DoD computer or mobile device, your online activity may be monitored or recorded by DoD.


We will not ask for information that would identify you (such as your name or address) unless you ask to have a staff member follow up with you. We will not record or store the chat. However, if you disclose your name and location and are under age 18 or we fear that you are in danger of committing suicide or may be a danger to others (or otherwise as required by law), we may have to provide this information to the authorities.
