Since 2007, the Veterans Crisis Line (VCL) has supported millions of #Veterans and if you’re having thoughts of suicide or concerned about one, reach 24/7 crisis support through the new number: Dial 988, then Press 1.

The change is a result of the National Suicide Hotline Designation Act. The law authorized 988 as the new three-digit number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (Lifeline). Under the law, all telephone service providers in the U.S. had to activate the number by July 16, 2022.

Be prepared and save the new number in your phone: Dial 988, then Press 1. Remember, you’re not alone. Day or night, the Veterans Crisis Line is here for you.
