Veterans Crisis Hotline

Published 07/31/2007 05:21 PM   |    Updated 09/19/2019 10:31 AM

Is there someone to call if a veteran is in crisis or at risk of suicide?

The Veterans Crisis Line is a toll-free, confidential resource that connects Veterans in crisis and their families and friends with qualified, caring VA responders.

Veterans and their loved ones can call or chat online to receive free, confidential support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, even if they are not registered with VA or enrolled in VA health care.

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.

Vet Centers and VA Medical Centers stand ready to reach out and help veterans in crisis or at risk for suicide. We can help.
