Suicide is a complex problem that has no quick fixes, especially within the community of our military veterans. Years of at war with repeated deployments and sustained combat exposure pose a special kind of threat to the mental health of our veterans, on top of normal daily stressors of financial stability, substance use, and relationship concerns. The transition from warrior to civilian can also be difficult for veterans. However, with love and support from people close to them, many veterans are overcoming these difficulties. If you are concerned about a veteran in your life, encourage them to seek help. Each branch of service provides service member and family support services and The Office of Veteran Affairs’ Veterans Crisis Line is available online or by calling 800-273-8225. It is a free, confidential resource that veterans, their families, and their friends can access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Sometimes, something as simple as talking, and more importantly listening, can help open doors.
