Learn what to do if YOU witness harassment or assault

Quote from VA Secretary Denis McDonough. Every VA patient, their families and caregivers, as well as sexual assault survivors, staff, visitors and advocates should feel safe in all VA facilities.

What can you do if you witness sexual harassment or assault in a VA facility?

As a bystander, you can help other Veterans when you know what to do.

Countless interactions occur among VA staff, Veterans, Service Members, caregivers, family members, and visitors every day. We can all help ensure positive and respectful interactions that are free from harassment when we know the right thing to do when we observe possible harassment in the VA facilities we visit.

Bystander Intervention Training for Veterans will help you know what you can do if you witness sexual harassment or assault. Spend 30 minutes in this online training now to learn how to recognize a hostile situation, how to respond to it, and how to get help.

We all have a responsibility to ensure that the VA community is safe, welcoming, and a place that is free of harassment. Thank you for your service and for your commitment to a harassment-free VA.
