What should I do if I am thinking about suicide?

The Department of Veterans Affairs has founded a national suicide prevention hot-line to ensure veterans in an emotional crisis have free, 24/7 access to trained counselors. You can call the Life Line Number, 1 (800) 273-8255 and press # 1 to be routed to the Suicide Prevention Hotline. The website www.veteranscrisisline.net will have information about services for veterans in crisis and you can also access a one-on-one chat service with a counselor.
