Deaf - Hard of Hearing
The Veterans Crisis Line is an excellent resource for every Veteran. Quote by Christian Sarcona, U.S. Marine Corps, 2008-2012. The confidential Veterans Crisis Line is available to all Veterans and their families and friends in times of crisis. Individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing can connect with professional, caring VA responders through online chat, text message (838255), and TTY service 1-800-799-4889. The online chat, text, and TTY service are free, confidential, and available 24/7/365 to any Veteran and their loved ones, even if they are not registered with VA or enrolled in VA health care.
