How to Respond  

When you notice a cadet in distress, your response can make all the difference. The only real risk is to do nothing.

Choosing a pathway:

If you have a relationship with the cadet (even the smallest degree of rapport) and notice signs of distress, try talking with him or her directly. Begin the conversation by expressing your concern. (See “speak directly with the cadet”)

If you do not really know the cadet but notice signs of distress or are aware of a pattern of concerning behaviors, you can consult with us on how to address your concerns, 540-464-7667.

In any given situation, there are several "right ways" to reach out in a caring manner.
