Suicide Prevention: The Power of One Act

Suicide prevention starts with you

All of us can do our part to prevent suicide. Join the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), local and national organizations, and individuals across the country in supporting The Power of 1: Show how one act can encourage Veterans, Service members, and their loved ones to seek confidential crisis support from the Veterans Crisis Line.

Whether it's something as simple as striking up a conversation with a Veteran, or encouraging those on your social networks to support Veterans in your area, every little bit counts. Your actions could save a life. Be the reason someone you know finds support during a time of crisis. Visit to learn how you can help.
