Vets describe runaround when calling crisis line
This link is a story of a Texas veteran records 36 minutes on hold!
One of our own Sands veterans just told us last week that his wife telephoned the VA Crisis Line, received a message she had a 30 minutes wait, and then they “listened to elevator music”.
Thank God our brother’s story had a good ending. He continued to visit with his VA therapist, the Legacy Peer Support Group and his wife was an experienced care giver.
She found a solution to avoid a “suicide by cop” by driving him to a local hospital for care. Later it was determined that our Sand veteran had his medication changed to a different medication.
Our Sands veteran is improving and continues to visit with his VA therapist and the Legacy Peer Support Group. He is looking forward to a recommended VA in-house program.
“Hasten, O God, to save me;
O Lord, come quickly to help me”
