Suicide Prevention

Sometimes, life’s challenges can feel overwhelming. VA offers a number of programs and resources for Veterans and their loved ones, friends, and health care providers. Suicide is a national health concern that affects many veterans. VA works with community partners across the country – including faith communities, employers, schools, and health care organizations – to prevent suicide among all Veterans, including those who may never come to VA for care.

Sometimes, a crisis may involve thoughts of suicide. Learn to recognize the following warning signs: Hopelessness; feeling like there’s no way out; Anxiety, agitation, sleeplessness, or mood swings; Feeling like there is no reason to live; Rage or anger; Increasing alcohol or drug misuse; Withdrawing from family and friends. If you are feeling depressed, anxious, hopeless, or as if life has no purpose, contact the resources that are available for you.
