Reviews about Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1
Documentary featuring the most critical of calls to the suicide line
I cried throughout a lot of this movie. In a good way. The things these people do are amazing, and I would very much like to see the majority of America watching things like this in order to understand the reality of what Veterans often go through.
I live in an area that has a lot of military and my office is near the VA. I see a lot of homeless veterans and see the aftermath of the recent Iraqi/Afghanistan war. Crisis Hotline received an Oscar and I was interested in finding out what the movie was all about so I ordered it on Amazon. It is a very short documentary film based on a limited amount of time at a Hotline for Veterans, and in the short time of the film it brings home the honest results of how the war has effected many veterans and the many mental problems. This film affected me deeply and has made me want to become involved some how in helping our vets. On my way to work everyday I pass a sign by the VA for the Crisis Hotline - press 1 and I think of this movie. The movie definitely deserved an Oscar for bring the reality of the war and our vets into our living rooms.
....The people who take care of the veterans who call into this hotline are angels among us !
I only wish it had been a full length documentary and more information about veteran suicides.
This was good to see. It would've been better if it had gone more in depth and been longer. It does give you an interesting glimpse into crisis line workers and the lack of effort we give for the mental well being of our veterans.
