A new national help hotline, Vets4Warriors, was recently created. The hotline's mission is to provide 24/7 confidential, stigma free peer support by veterans to active duty, National Guard and Reserve servicemembers, veterans, retirees, and their families/caregivers. The hotline just received special state funding and can help connect clients with a new $5 million program called the Veterans Total Care Initiative. This six-month pilot program will help any servicemember, vet or reservist bypass long wait lines and get expedited treatment. The Veterans Total Care Initiative went live Jan. 1 and can be reached at (866) 838-7654. If you need help now, call the Vets4Warriors National Help Hotline at (855) 838-8255 and visit the Vets4Warriors website.
