Veterans Crisis Line reaches out with caring letters

caring letters program

In a tough year when many people are experiencing isolation, VA’s Caring Letters Program sends periodic messages with simple expressions of care and concern to Veterans who use VA health care and contact the Veterans Crisis Line (VCL).

Caring Letters are reaching Veterans across the country in every state and beyond. They are mailed once a month for the first four months after a Veteran calls the VCL and every other month after that, with an extra card for Veteran’s Day.

Although the letters have gone to thousands of Veterans, the people behind them and signing off are real and so is the intent.
