Mar 10, 2015 - For some Veterans, life after service is difficult. Some feel overwhelmed and lost. One person, one connection, or one act of compassion can make a difference in the life of a Veteran, opening doors to vital support. That’s the message behind the public service announcement “Lost: The Power of One Connection,” which will guide audiences to free, confidential support through the Veterans Crisis Line.
The Veterans Crisis Line connects Veterans or Service members in crisis, as well as their families and friends, with qualified, caring U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs responders through a confidential, toll-free hotline, online chat, and text-messaging service. Veterans and their loved ones can call 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1, chat online at Veterans Crisis Line/Chat, or text to 838255 to receive confidential support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Reach out. One call can make a difference.
