Veterans in crisis are just a three-digit phone call away from help

What to Expect

If you’re a Veteran in crisis or concerned about one, call to reach caring, qualified VA responders 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

  1. A qualified responder will answer your call, ready to listen and help.
  2. The responder will ask a few questions, such as whether you or the Veteran or service member you’re concerned about may be in immediate danger or at risk for suicide.
  3. The call is free and confidential, and you decide how much information to share.
  4. Support doesn’t end with your conversation. Our responders can connect you with the resources you need.
  5. Afterward you may be connected with your local suicide prevention coordinator, who will contact you the next business day for continued support.
