NATIONAL SUICIDE PREVENTION LIFELINE
If you are in a crisis and need someone to talk to right away, or you are concerned about someone else, call
Or send a text message to 838255
22KILL is not a crisis intervention resource, and we strongly suggest that in the event of an emergency, you should always call EMS or the police. If you ever find yourself in this position, here are a few suggestions that may help facilitate clear communications:
In the event of an emergency:
- Call 911 (EMS/police) and if possible, request an on-duty veteran be sent to speak with the person in need
- They’ll need critical information from you: address of where the individual is, vehicle type and color (license plate number is helpful if you have it), and/or their last known location
- Contact the person’s family if you have this information*
- For veterans and first responders, contact their unit or command if you have this information*
*if you do not have this information – DO NOT take it upon yourself to insert yourself into the situation, please let trained authorities handle it
In the event of a non-emergency:
Have the person or a family member call 22KILL for resources at 214-462-7229 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Important notes about using social media:
If you are seeking resources or are reaching out on the behalf of a veteran, it’s always best to designate ONE POINT OF CONTACT to take the lead in these communications.
Also, please do not excessively share “missing” or “in-need” posts outside of the individual’s region – unfortunately this is how information gets miscommunicated and often leads to headaches and frustration for the veteran and/or their families.
Email email@example.com if you’re unsure of how to handle a non-emergency situation.
