Veterans In Need of Counseling Assistance Have Resources at Their Disposal

The Disabled Veterans National Foundation wants to remind vets and non-vets alike that September is Suicide Prevention Month and wants to shine a light on the crisis of suicide among veterans.

DVFN data shows that, on average, approximately 22 veterans a day commit suicide. There are several reasons why veterans in particular feel there is no way out during times of crisis – whether it is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), survivor’s guilt, financial difficulties, family problems or a combination of factors.

For veterans who are in need of assistance, the DVFN has several options for them to access. They can call (800) 273-8255 and press 1 to talk to someone, start a confidential online chat session at www.VeteransCrisisLine.net/chat, send a text message to 838255 to connect to a Veterans Administration responder, take a self-check quiz at www.VeteransCrisisLine.net/quiz or connect through chat, text or TTY for those who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Veterans who feel depression or despair need to know that there are people willing to help them during the hard times, from Wright County Veterans Services to state and national organizations. The men and women of the Armed Forces put their lives on the line to protect the freedoms we all enjoy and sometimes take for granted. It is up to all of to assist these heroes when they need a helping hand.
