By clicking the button above, you accept the terms of service.
If you’re a Veteran in crisis or concerned about one, crisis chat is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
A caring VA responder will join the chat, ready to listen and help.
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.
The chat is free and confidential, and you decide how much information to share.
Support doesn't end with your conversation. Our responders can connect you with the resources you need.
Afterward you may be connected with your local suicide prevention coordinator, who will contact you the next business day for continued support.
If you're experiencing a crisis or supporting someone who is, the Veterans Crisis Line can help.
