On January 10, 2022, the compulsion to use the Veterans Crisis Line happened. Luckily, the call was an inquiry to assist other veterans.
The crisis line is not only a service in times of suicide, but a resource for all who are unsure of what to do when they are dealing with a veteran on the verge of suicide.
The crisis line lifeline points caretakers and patients in the safest direction.
Making the call opened up the operator to spread the word about the tools provided by the Veterans Administration through the PTSD Coach and Mindfulness Coach app.
Please take a minute and listen to the call:
Making the call at 1-800-273-8255 and pressing 1 walks the listener through their thoughts preventing suicide. Picking up the phone feels like picking up a 100-pound barbell with untreated Post Traumatic Stress Symptoms.
The crisis line assists caretakers who are uncertain where to turn, who get stuck in the mud of family members who deal with untreated PTSD.
