FAP’s comprehensive prevention continuum of awareness, education, and intervention in high-risk situations reinforces the Army’s strong and continuous commitment to protect the “Total Army Family. Communities must continue to participate in successful prevention campaigns and ask its members to:
“Recognize” signs of distress and take action – is aimed at neighbors, friends, Family members, other Soldiers and Leadership, and is meant to open their eyes to the signs of risk that can lead to abuse. It is also aimed at parents so they can recognize stressors in their own lives.
“Rethink” wellness and ways to stay healthy – is aimed at the individual parent who is at low or moderate risk for abuse.
“Reach Out” for professional help – is aimed at parents considered to be ‘high risk’ for abuse who can benefit from professional help.
“Report” child abuse and neglect – is aimed at the whole community. Suspected abuse must be reported, not overlooked.
