Veterans Chat – Suicide Prevention – 1-800-273-8255 (TALK)

The Suicide Prevention campaign at the Department of Veterans Affairs is expanding its outreach to all Veterans by piloting an online, one-to-one ‘chat service’ for those who prefer reaching out for assistance using the internet. Called ‘Veterans Chat”, the new service enables Vets, their families and friends to go online where they can anonymously chat with a trained VA counselor. If a ‘chatter’ is determined to be in a crisis, the counselor can take immediate steps to transfer the person to the VA Suicide Prevention Hotline, where further counseling and referral services are provided and crisis intervention steps can be taken.

The chat line is not intended to be a crisis response line. Chat responders are trained in an intervention method specifically developed for the chat line to assist people with emotional distress and concerns. Since becoming operational in July 2007, VA’s Suicide Prevention Hotline has received more than 150,000 calls, resulting in 4,000 rescues.
