For service members, veterans and their families facing anxiety and depression, for whatever reason, the Military Crisis Line is available 24/7 for free, confidential support. But what about those forward deployed to Afghanistan?
That’s what prompted commanders in the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) to establish their own crisis hotline.
“The crisis hotline is very, very important to our men and women who are out here in harm’s way everyday that need help and want to call somebody to help them,” said ISAF senior enlisted leader Sgt. Maj. Thomas Capel.
The crisis hotline is available day and night for service members, and is also confidential.
To call the crisis hotline from a cell dial 070-113-2000, wait for the tone then dial 111.
From a DSN or NVIOP line dial 111 or 318-421-8218.
