    Thumbs up Pres. Obama orders VA to expand suicide prevention services!

    President Obama issued an executive order Friday tasking the Department of Veterans Affairs to expand its suicide prevention and mental health services.

    Under the order, VA is expected to increase its veteran crisis line by 50 percent by the end of the year; ensure that a veteran in distress is given access to a trained mental health worker in 24 hours or less; and launch a national 12-month suicide prevention campaign to educate veterans about available mental health services.

    Our military come back home and need help to re-adjust to RL. This is much needed assistance for them.

    It's about time! Good move Obama! It's been awhile since I've gotten to say that.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    Huge move! Very much needed in support of our Armed Forces. Taking care of them when they return. And please come home now!
