The Department of Veterans Affairs has created a smartphone function to provide immediate access to the Veterans Crisis Line.

The function will be available on iPhone and Android systems.

The person will only have to say “Call the Veterans Crisis Line” and it will automatically dial the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline which also serves the Veterans Crisis Line.

This function is part of their Help Prevent Suicide campaign.

The support will be available 24/7.
