Plans for vets suicide prevention training, new three-digit emergency mental health crisis line signed into law | Military Times

President Donald Trump has signed off on several new programs to provide veterans with more mental health resources. This includes new training on suicide prevention and a three-digit number you can call and automatically be linked to a crisis line. The universal number will be 988 and will be active by the fall of 2021. Twenty veterans are lost to suicide every day according to recent statistics from the VA.

If you or someone you know needs help, please call 800-273-8255.
