The Veterans Crisis Line is a toll-free, confidential resource that connects veterans in crisis and their families with qualified caring U.S. Department of Veterans’ Affairs responders.

Veterans and their loved ones can call 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1, chat online at, or send a text message to 838255 to receive free, confidential support 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, even if they are not registered with the VA or enrolled in VA healthcare.
