Military Crisis Line 1-800-273-8255 ACT - Ask Care Treat


If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, call 911. If you or someone you know is contemplating suicide, seek assistance immediately by contacting the Military Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255.

Understanding suicide warning signs and risk factors can empower you to help identify, prevent and intervene early to save lives. Our suicide prevention resources help individuals recognize and understand suicide related behaviors, risk factors, warning signs, and protective factors as well as learn how to help if confronted with a suicide situation. These valuable resources can be used not only by Sailors or Marines who need a helping hand but also by family members and friends, command leadership, command suicide prevention coordinators (SPCs), behavioral health providers, primary care and other specialty providers and chaplains.
