    I read this while researching the Veterans Administration Suicide Hotline. There is only 1 suicide hotline that is dedicated to US veterans, and it is located in Canandaigua, NY. They work 24/7, holidays, weekends to help US vets from all over the world. Victor Montgomery III happens to be a local author who once worked at the VA suicide hotline. Considering that he's probably spoken to hundreds, or even thousands, of veterans that are in dire emotional situations in their very darkest moments, I read this while researching the Veterans Administration Suicide Hotline.

Victor Montgomery III happens to be a local author who once worked at the VA suicide hotline. Considering that he's probably spoken to hundreds, or even thousands, of veterans that are in dire emotional situations in their very darkest moments, he has a unique vantage point. Montgomery's perspective is very interesting, and recognizing the issues and knowing the resources on how to help people (veterans or not) is very important and easily overlooked. I notice there are no other reviews about this, but it's really worth the read.

    Victor Montgomery is a crisis therapist and former 911 operator for the VA suicide prevention line. He offers case studies with scenarios on how to de-escalate behavior and get the person to safety. The book is stuffed with resources for vets and those who love them. It gives real ideas for helping the person re-evaluate their suicide ideation.
