The North Carolina Veteran’s Assistance Council is here to make a difference. While our services focus on homelessness, we understand that veterans may have a variety of unmet needs. The health and safety of all veterans is a main priority. Therefore, NCVAC would like to provide emergency information for veterans who may be suffering from depression or having thoughts of suicide.
If you or a family member need crisis assistance, please contact the Veterans Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255 or send a text message to 838255 for free, confidential assistance. The Veterans Crisis Line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Additionally, individuals experiencing depression or having thoughts of suicide can contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK. Again, the services are free and confidential.
Each of these resources provide skilled and trained crisis response workers to help with your needs. If you need immediate medical assistance or are having imminent thoughts of hurting yourself or others, call 9-1-1 immediately.
