The documentary film about the Veterans’ Crisis Line received the Academy Award for Best

Documentary film in 2013. Based in Canandaigua, NY and open 24/7/365, the Veterans Crisis Line receives more than 22,000 calls each month from Veterans of all conflicts who are struggling or contemplating suicide due to the psychological wounds of war and the challenges of returning to civilian life.
