VA’s Moment When Digital Campaign Encourages Mental Health Conversations

Website features more than 600 stories of Veteran resilience and recovery

Get inspired and get involved with the The Moment When campaign! Launched in May, this VA national initiative features Veterans’ personal experiences with mental health treatment and recovery. VA is boosting its efforts to raise awareness of available mental health resources, demystify mental health treatment and encourage family members and friends to start the conversation with a Veteran going through a hard time.

“VA continues to be the nation’s vanguard in reshaping the conversation around mental health treatment and recovery,” said VA Secretary Robert Wilkie.

The Moment When campaign highlights many moments in the broader mental health recovery process: from the moment when a Veteran reached out for support, to the moment when the Veteran realized treatment was working. Visit www.MaketheConnection.net to explore stories of recovery and find local resources.

Veterans who are in crisis or having thoughts of suicide, and those who know a Veteran in crisis, can call VCL for confidential support 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Call 800-273-8255 and press 1, send a text message to 838255 or chat online at VeteransCrisisLine.net/Chat.
