Suicide Prevention

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day, and the US Department of Health and Human Services has teamed up with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs to take action.

HHS continues to support the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and to partner with the Department of Veterans Affairs on the Veterans Crisis Line. Anyone can call 1-800-273-8255 at any time – day or night – to get help.  The Lifeline has answered an average of 89,000 calls per month this year, with more than 27,000 calls per month being answered by the Veterans Crisis Line.


If you, or anyone else that you know, needs assistance or to speak to someone, call 1-800-273-8255.
