KTHV: Sen. Boozman proposes new bill for veteran suicide prevention

Written by Press Release

August 12, 2020

Senator John Boozman (R-AR) is calling on the House of Representatives to pass the Commander John Scott Hannon Veterans Mental Health Care Improvement Act. 

The bill would bring policy changes to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to help prevent veteran suicides. The Senator says the bill is meant to reassure America’s veterans that their best days are ahead of them. 

The Senate recently passed landmark veteran mental health and suicide prevention legislation.

In a speech on the topic, Boozman said we’re “one step closer to paving a new path forward in suicide prevention and implementing a new strategy that I believe will give hope and purpose to the men and women who live with these invisible injuries.”
