Suicide and the COVID-19 pandemic

View resources to help

It is normal to have increased feelings of loneliness, sadness, fear, or anxiety. That’s especially true during the COVID-19 pandemic, which can bring about some new challenges in managing your recovery. Learn more about managing these challenges here.


Veterans do not live, work, and serve in isolation from the community, the nation, or the world. The issue of suicide in the U.S. also affects the Veteran population. That's why we are working with an extensive network of community partners across the country to prevent suicide among all Veterans including those who may never come to VA for care. Learn more about our National Strategy for Preventing Veteran Suicide.
