Storytelling is powerful….but a community of listeners can be life-saving. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs & its partners created this PSA to mobilize the nation and urgently call on the public to take notice and action by reaching out to a veteran or service member who may be in crisis. CaringBridge is honored to partner with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and provide that positive, caring and engaged community that our military men & women deserve. If you know a Veteran or Service Member who could benefit from CaringBridge, visit www.caringbridge.org/military.
We can all prevent suicide. The Veterans Crisis Line connects Veterans in crisis and their families and friends with qualified, caring Department of Veterans Affairs responders through a confidential toll-free hotline, online chat, or text. Veterans and their loved ones can call 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1, chat online, or send a text message to 838255 to receive confidential support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Support for deaf and hard of hearing individuals is available.
New to CaringBridge and Wondering What We Do?
CaringBridge is a nonprofit social network dedicated to helping family and friends communicate with and support loved ones during a health crisis through the use of free, personal websites. Know someone who could benefit from starting a CaringBridge site to keep loved ones informed and get the love, and support they need?
