One small act can make a difference in the life of someone else in trouble.

If you know of a Veteran in need of assistance due to a life crisis, use the VA Crisis Line. The Veterans Crisis Line was established by the Veterans Administration to connect Veterans in crisis and their families and friends with qualified, caring Department of Veterans Affairs personnel through a confidential toll-free hotline, online chat, or text. Veterans and their loved ones can call 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1, chat online, or send a text message to 838255 to receive confidential support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Support for deaf and hard of hearing individuals is available.

The Crisis Line website is http://www.veteranscrisisline.net/

You can do your part to support a Veteran in crisis.

The professionals at the Veterans Crisis Line are specially trained and experienced in helping Veterans of all ages and circumstances—from Veterans coping with mental health issues that were never addressed to recent Veterans struggling with relationships or the transition back to civilian life.

Since its launch in 2007, the Veterans Crisis Line has answered more than 1.25 million calls and made more than 39,000 lifesaving rescues. In 2009, the Veterans Crisis Line added an anonymous online chat service and has engaged in more than 175,000 chats. In November 2011, the Veterans Crisis Line introduced a text-messaging service to provide another way for Veterans to connect with confidential, round-the-clock support, and since then has responded to more than 24,000 texts.

VA is working to make sure that all Veterans and their loved ones are aware of the Veterans Crisis Line. To reach as many Veterans as possible, VA is coordinating with communities and partner groups nationwide, including community-based organizations, Veterans Service Organizations, and local health care providers, to let Veterans and their loved ones know that support is available whenever, if ever, they need it.

Remember our Veterans of the Armed Forces in all walks of life on Veterans Day this Tuesday, November 11th, and if you can, reach out a helping hand to a Veteran in need.
