22 Veterans commit suicide each day.  That statistic simply brings tears to my eyes.  Whether you are a veteran, a sexual minority, gender variant, LGBT youth, or anyone in pain; here is a list of local and national resources and support lines to help you.

National Suicide Prevention Hot Line: 800.273.8255 is available to anyone.  There is a veteran’s line available by pressing 1.
