Getting Help

“I think I need help.” These words can empower change and begin the journey toward self-discovery and healing.

If you know you need assistance, don’t wait to ask for help. Contact the Military Crisis Line to connect with a trained counselor with a single phone call or click of a mouse.

  • This confidential, immediate help is available 24/7 at no cost to active-duty, Guard and reserve members, their families and friends.
  • In the United States call 800-273-8255, then press 1, or access online chat at the Military Crisis Line or by texting to 838255.
  • Or contact your local Director of Psychological Health today for assistance connecting with local resources.

Help is on the way

The first step to resiliency is often the hardest ? recognizing when you need help. If you are a service member, needing help doesn’t make you a lesser airman or soldier. In fact, seeking help makes you an active player in your well-being, and being well is the best way to ensure you’re there for your family, friends, unit and nation.
