- The Red Flag Feature.
The information and peer support offered on HC2’s website, mobile application or “app” and Facebook page are meant to be a supportive community of peer-to-peer interaction for people who have identified themselves as needing to talk, by using the “Red Flag” feature.
The contents of the MY3 Mobile Application, such as text, graphics, images, information obtained from MY3’s licensors, and other material contained on MY3 (“Content”) are for informational purposes only. The Content is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or another qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition or thoughts of suicide. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay seeking it because of something you have read on the MY3 Mobile Application.
You understand that by initiating a “Red Flag” in the HC2 app, an anonymous alert will be sent out to other HC2 users in your area [AND WHAT ELSE IS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN]. You understand that HC2 employees, officers, agents, and users, the administrative team are not trained in emergency crisis response or intervention.
You understand and agree that solely the individual user who initiates a “Red Flag” can deactivate the “Red Flag.” You understand that once the “Red Flag” is deactivated, you will no longer be reported as needing peer-to-peer support.
HC2 DOES NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, SECURITY, ACCURACY, OR USEFULNESS WITH RESPECT TO THE RED FLAG FEATURE. HC2 is under no circumstance held liable for the peer-to-peer interactions that occur as a result of a “Red Flag” initiation. You understand and agree that the HC2 and its users are not held liable for any actions that occur after a “Red Flag” is initiated, up to and including death, whether intentional or accidental.
RED FLAG FEATURE IS NOT INTENDED TO BE A SUBSTITUTE FOR PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL ADVICE, DIAGNOSIS, OR TREATMENT. ALWAYS SEEK THE ADVICE OF YOUR PHYSICIAN OR OTHER QUALIFIED HEALTH PROVIDER WITH ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE REGARDING A MEDICAL CONDITION OR THOUGHTS OF SUICIDE. NEVER DISREGARD PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL ADVICE OR DELAY SEEKING IT BECAUSE OF SOMETHING YOU HAVE READ ON COMMUNITY, WEBSITE, APP OR FACEBOOK PAGE.
WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO SEEK PROFESSIONAL GUIDANCE BY CALLING THE VETERAN CRISIS HOTLINE AT 1-800-273-8255 AND PRESS 1 OR TEXT TO 838255.

IMPORTANT: If you’ve encountered a direct threat of suicide on HC2, please contact law enforcement; report to the HC2 administrators using the report feature or via firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Veteran Crisis Hotline immediately at 1-800-273-8255.
What should I do if someone posts something about suicide or self-injury?
If someone you know is in danger, please contact local emergency services for help immediately. After you’ve called emergency services, connect with your friend or call someone who can. Showing that you care matters. Make sure they know that you’re there for them and that they aren’t alone.
If the threat of physical danger isn’t immediate, there are things you can do to help:
- Provide Support to this person or contact a family member, friend, counselor or teacher, who may be able to provide support
- Share resources and contact information that this person may find helpful
- Report the content to us so we can reach out to this person with information that may be helpful to them
Follow these tips, provided by Facebook via Forefront, for talking with someone in crisis:
- Empathize with them. Take their experience seriously. Listen carefully, communicate care and avoid offering solutions unless your friend asks. Be understanding of your friend’s emotions and let them know they’re important to you.
- If you can, ask them directly and compassionately whether they’re thinking about suicide. If they say “yes,” don’t panic. Sharing suicidal thoughts can relieve feelings of isolation, and talking about it can often provide relief.
- If possible, make sure your friend doesn’t have a plan or easy access to things like firearms or large doses of medication.
- Connect them with a counselor or help center who can offer support.
- Be available, both today and in the future. Follow up with your friend regularly to show that you care

Using Social Media Safely
HC2 brings people together. We are committed to creating a community of Veterans, retirees, and current service members to connect with one another on a secure platform.
With so many people on HC2, user safety is a priority. We understand that meeting someone for the first time whether online, through an acquaintance or on an outing is intriguing and exciting. However, your safety is very important, and because you are in control of your HC2 experience, there are certain safety steps that you should follow while meeting new acquaintances – both online and offline.
We ask you to read the tips and information below and strongly urge you to follow these guidelines in the interest of your personal safety and well-being. However, you are always the best judge of your own safety, and these guidelines are not intended to be a substitute for your own judgment.
Protect Your Finances & Never Send Money or Financial Information
Never respond to any request to send money, especially overseas or via wire transfer, and report it to us immediately – even if the person claims to be in an emergency. Wiring money is like sending cash: the sender has no protections against loss and it’s nearly impossible to reverse the transaction or trace the money. For more information, refer to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s advice to avoid online scams.
Protect Your Personal Information
Never give personal information, such as: your social security number, credit card number or bank information, or your work or home address to people you don’t know or haven’t met in person.
Note: HC2 will never send you an email asking for your username and password information. Any such communication should be reported immediately to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be Web Wise
Block and report suspicious users. You can block and report concerns about any suspicious user anonymously at any time on HC2. Keep conversations on the platform. Bad actors will try to move the conversation to text, personal email or phone conversations.
Report All Suspicious Behavior
- Asks you for money or donations
- Requesting photographs.
- Minors or individuals who have not served in the United States Armed Forces using the platform
- Users sending harassing or offensive messages
- Users behaving inappropriately after meeting in person
- Fraudulent registration or profiles.
- Spam or solicitation, such as invitations to call 1-900 numbers or attempts to sell products or services.
First meetings are exciting, but always take precautions and follow these guidelines to help you stay safe:
Get to Know the Other Person
Keep your communications limited to the platform and really get to know users online/using the app before meeting them in person. Bad actors often push people to communicate off the platform immediately. It’s up to you to research and do your due diligence.
Always Meet and Stay in Public
Meet for the first time in a populated, public place – never in a private or remote location, and never at your home or apartment. If your new connection pressures you, end the meetup and leave at once.
Tell Your Friends and Family Members of Your Plans
Inform a friend or family member of your plans and when and where you’re going. Make sure you have your cell phone charged and with you at all times.
Transport Yourself to and from the Meeting
You need to be independent and in control of your own transportation, especially incase, things don’t work out.
Consumption of alcohol and/or other drugs can impair your judgment and potentially put you in danger. It’s important to keep a clear mind and avoid anything that might place you at risk. Be aware that bad actors might try to take advantage of you by altering your beverage(s) with synthetic substances.
HC2 welcomes everyone and empowers our community of users to create and cultivate relationships. An important aspect of any healthy relationship though – whether formed on HC2 or otherwise – is ensuring proper sexual, mental and emotional health and safety. As a member of the HC2 community, it is your responsibility to make sure you do the following if you choose to engage in sexual activity:
You and your partner should use proper protection. Condoms and other mechanisms can significantly reduce the risk of contracting or passing on an STI, such as HIV. To be effective, however, protective measures must be used consistently. Please keep in mind; you can still get certain STIs, like herpes or HPV from contact with your partner’s skin even when using a condom.
Be Open and Honest
It is completely reasonable to have a conversation with your partner regarding sex and sexual contact before actually having it. All issues ranging from the number of partners each of you has had, to the last time each of you was tested for STIs are reasonable to discuss. Many STIs are curable or treatable. If either you or your partner has an STI that is curable, you both need to start treatment to avoid becoming re-infected. It is important to be completely honest in these conversations.
The risk of contracting some STIs can be reduced through vaccination. Talk to your doctor or a professional at a sexual health clinic to learn more.
Know Your Status
Know your status. Some STIs don’t show symptoms. Regular testing is critical to stay on top of your health and help prevent the spread of STIs. After testing, always ask for a copy of your test results so you are sure of your status. There are many free, quick and confidential testing options – find the best locations near you.
For Further Help, Support or Advice
In the case that an emergency has happened, immediately call 911. Emergency situations include a recent threat of violence or sexual violence, recent act of violence or sexual violence or if your health or someone else’s health is in danger.
