The United States. That is states. Every 80 minutes, a veteran dies by suicide in America. 20% of suicides in the US are caused by former service members, but only 1% of Americans have served in the military. The Veterans Crisis Line gets more than 22,000 calls a month from veterans who are struggling or contemplating suicide. Through the work of the hotline's trained responders, this documentary shows the traumas suffered by America's veterans. CRISIS HOTLINE captures private moments where the professionals, many of whom are themselves veterans or veterans' spouses, can often interrupt the thoughts and plans of suicidal callers to steer them out of crisis.
Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1 is a 2013 documentary film about the Veterans' Crisis Line, directed by Ellen Goosenberg Kent and produced by Dana Perry. The film was edited by Geof Bartz, A.C.E and co-edited by Gladys Mae Murphy. It won the Academy Award for Best Documentary (Short Subject) at the 87th Academy Awards.
