Be a part of The Power of 1 by showing your support during Suicide Prevention Month this September. The Power of 1 is a VA campaign that explains how one small act can make a difference in the life of a Veteran in crisis.
Whether it’s simply striking up a conversation to let a Veteran know you’re there to listen, or encouraging those in your social networks to rally behind the Veterans in your area, every little bit counts. Your actions could save a life.
During Suicide Prevention Month, join VA, local and national organizations, and individuals across the country to inspire your community to be part of the solution. Show how one act can encourage Veterans, Servicemembers and their loved ones to seek confidential crisis support from the Veterans Crisis Line. Please spread the word, and help to inspire your neighbors and friends to do the same. We’re all in this together.
If you notice warning signs in a Veteran or Servicemember you know, connect him or her with the Veterans Crisis Line’s 24/7/365 resources: Call 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1, chat online at VeteransCrisisLine.net/chat, or text to 838255.
