The Veteran's Crisis Line, founded by Department of Veterans' Affairs (VA) Veterans Health Administration (VHA) is a national suicide prevention hotline to ensure veterans in emotional crisis have free, 24/7 access to trained counselors. To operate the Veterans Hotline, the VA partnered with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The VCL offers three ways that veterans can get help: Phone, Chat online, and Self-check quiz.
