I am Active Duty/Reserve and Guard
If you’re a Servicemember in crisis or know a Servicemember who is, confidential support is only a phone call, click, or text away — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
The Military Crisis Line is free to all Servicemembers, including members of the National Guard and Reserve, and Veterans, even if you are not registered with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) or enrolled in VA health care. Hundreds of men and women in the military call us every day, and start to get back on track.
