September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. Help spread the message about suicide prevention awareness on social media by using VA's hashtag #BeThere. The VA has downloadable materials to spread the message about the crisis hotline, examples of support messages to send to a loved one, and #BeThere information at the Be There website. If you are in crisis, or know a veteran who is, call the VA Crisis Line toll-free at (800) 273-8255 and then press 1; text the number 838255; or chat online.
