This video includes information and a sample conversation to help family members talk to Veterans about their emotional health, distress, or even suicide. Each of us can make a difference in the life of a Veteran who is feeling stressed, anxious, or hopeless. The simple act of starting a conversation can be the turning point that helps a Veteran get the care he or she needs and can help save a life.  This video is one of numerous resources available in Start the Conversation: New Tools for Veteran Suicide Prevention, a toolkit of materials developed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.    More information about the toolkit can be found at www.veteranscrisisline.net/starttheconversation.
