We know what it was like back then, but times have changed. You are no longer alone and isolated. Many current and former Civil Air Patrol members and employees have shared their stories here or with NOTF and CAP Insights. Some share openly, some anonymously and some can only share privately. AuxBeacon does not release all of the information it receives, but what you are providing is being put to good use at this time.
With that said, please do not despair. We have been asked to remind those who endured abuse that even if you could not produce evidence, others have successfully shown proof of CAP abuse, reprisal and slander tactics. As a result, you now stand a much better chance of being understood and believed.
September is National Suicide Prevention Month.
The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is a national network of local crisis centers that provides free and confidential emotional support to people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In hostile environments, members could be struggling with suicide. You can find more specific resources at their website or by calling 1-800-273-TALK(8255).
