FAP Victim Advocate Services

Navy FAP Victim Advocates provide comprehensive support services to help ensure the safety of victims of abuse, assist all family members affected by or involved in the abuse, and help prevent further violence. Victim Advocates assist with safety assessments and safety planning, crisis intervention, education and support, information about rights, referrals to community agencies, accompaniment to investigative agencies, legal appointments and court appearances, and advocate on victim’s behalf. Sailor Assistance and Intercept for Life (SAIL) SAIL is an intervention approach that provides rapid assistance, ongoing risk assessment, care coordination and reintegration assistance for service members identified with a suicide related behavior (SRB). Risk is assessed at key intervals using the Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) and managed using the Veterans Administration Safety Plan through a series of contacts over 90 days following an SRB. SAIL does not replace mental health services and is not a form of treatment.

to meet the needs of victims. Services are available to victims regardless of whether the victim knows the offender, or where and when the assault took place. Sexual assaults encompass a broad range of intentional sexual contacts that are unwelcome and without consent. No form of sexual assault is ever acceptable in the Department of the Navy, and all are crimes. Close coordination with law enforcement and legal is essential for successful prosecutions. Active intervention is one key element of sexual assault prevention. It emphasizes the responsibility of all service members to protect each other and to actively intervene in circumstances that may lead up to sexual assault. The mission of Fleet and Family Support Program SAPR Program is to prevent and respond to sexual assault, eliminating it from our ranks through a balance of focused education, comprehensive response, compassionate advocacy, and just adjudication in order to promote professionalism, respect, and trust, while preserving mission readiness. If you or someone you know has been or ever becomes a victim of sexual assault, contact the DoD Safe Helpline, a SAPR Victim Advocate, or your installation Sexual Assault Response Coordinator for 24/7 support. • Online at www.safehelpline.org • Call 1-877-995-5247 • Text 55-247
