Two Resources for Veterans with Hearing Loss
The Veterans Administration has a Veterans Crisis Line. It is a 24/7 resource for veterans in crisis and their loved ones with a voice hotline, online chat, and text messaging service. The VA recently added a TTY number for individuals using that technology.
