A spouse to be able to call for immediate help for PTSD from the VA for their partner.

This petition had 10,338 supporters


The Department of Veterans affairs tells people that when someone needs help they have to call themselves. Sometimes the veteran that needs the help is not capable of making that phone call anymore because they are so out of control with the post traumatic stress disorder that they can not function. I am trying to get them to understand that a spouse or family member knows when something is not right and when an emergency counseling session is needed. When someone else calls they are told when the earliest appointment is and most of the time it is at least 3 weeks out. Sometimes that just to long and that adds to the 22 veterans a day that commit suicide. I think by fixing this we may be able to lower that number in the future. Thank you in advance for signing and helping make a difference.
