Every year people take to the media and social networking arenas promoting World Suicide Prevention Day, which happens on September 10th each year. Despite all the publicity that the topic receives the United States is seeing an increase in the number of suicide-related deaths. Within the realm of suicide, some cells promote the topic with the hopes of drawing attention to their cause.

One of these cell groups is that of United States soldiers that have found themselves returning home with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). What even intensifies the issue is that the day of prevention falls one day before the anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.

Millions of women and men have served in various avenues defending this country. Many of them have seen active combat and have developed some pretty serious problems as a result. When they return home they find in next to impossible to cope with the changes. As a result, it is reported that 20 of these people take their own lives. They have come to believe that there is no hope for them.

This may large impart be to the fact that so much attention is given to awareness of the problem and so little to the preventions and treatment of such stress disorders in the countries military heroes. When the soldiers come home and are diagnosed with PTSD the general public sees it as a label, and they see the person that is emotionally distressed, so they stay away from the person so as not to set off an episode.

It is time for the public to stop being aware of the issue and to start getting involved in helping the nation’s heroes to have victory over PTSD and the increasing risk of suicide.

One doctor reports that when the stigma is removed more people are willing to come forward for help and others are more willing to get involved as in the case with HIV cases. This is not the case with veterans that are committing suicide as what they are facing is drastically different.

Many of the soldiers are not going to care about the stigma of a label. They care more about receiving the help that they need which seems to be lacking in some areas.

Those in politics have gone out of their way to better fund and help the issue of veteran suicide. President Trump has championed the cause and driven lawmakers to get on the ball and provide better funding and help for these heroes.

But there needs to be an increase in the treatments that are needed to treat PTSD and the soldiers that are returning home. In many cases, the issue should be discovered before the person is released into the general public so the help starts long before they get home.

The general public is educated on what PTSD is all about. Doctors can call it what it has been designated, but they still struggle with how to treat the problem. As a result, many of the veterans go home with no help and no hope only to take their own lives a short time after stepping through the door of their own home.

There is not much support for the treatment of psychiatric help. Many new treatments seem to be getting held up or stopped altogether by people with agendas. In the past two decades, there have not been any new more advanced treatments to combat PTSD and the ever-increasing suicide rate.

The increasing suicide rate needs to deal with not as a symptom but at the root of the problem. There are so many soldiers coming back to normal life and are being forgotten about during most of the year until September 10th rolls around and the media sites are flooded with awareness ads.

PTSD victims deserve better than what they are being offered by way of help. In many regions of the country, there is no help because the funds are just not available to put an office or medical center equipped with such help. President Trump is supporting the troops and the veterans as much as he can. Lawmakers need to take action and solve the problem.

  1. The lawmakers are cowards! These people need to go, put some people in with courage who will actually do what they are supposed to do! Can’t wait for another 4 years with my all time favorite President Trump!

  2. God bless our American soldiers, airmen, sailors & every military personnel & their families! we all need to thank President Trump for his support of America’s military! none of us know what each serviceman or woman has endured during their time of service for our country!

  3. I was never in the military but I served as a cop for 30 years. My wife is a Registered nurse (medically retired) and we both know and understand the problems that our military goes through with PTSD. I fully agree with our President that the lawmakers, most of which are probably the uncaring Democrats, need to start thinking more about our military and the general public than filled their own pockets and bellies full. They must remember that they were voted in by the public and they can easily be voted our. They are there at the will of the people and there to serve us not themselves.

  4. This congress is the biggest disgrace in american history . Impeach , Impeach , Investigate , Investigate , Open Boarders , Allow more illegals to come in , Protect them from I.C.E. Give them free medical care . Give them a stipend to live on . Gun control , Gun Control ,
    THEY FIGHT AND LIE ABOUT EACH OTHER LIKE CHILDREN .. THEY WANT TO DO MORE FOR ILLEGALS THAN FOR THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO PUT THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE SO THAT THEY CAN GO ON WITH THEIR PETTY BICKERING . Each and everyone know full well that after thirty million dollars and two years if turning every rock opening every closet threatning witness’s
    NOTHING , NOTHING has been found .. BUT the Idiots must carry on the shrade .. Instead of taking on the problems facing our veterans and those facing our country , They carry on their Investigate ,Investigate . They have no self pride , Morals , or integerity , I don’t think much of Woopie Golberg But I am happy to see her Indignation over their behavor ,, Utterly discusting . They had better take a different path because socisilam and communuism and free free is not going to happen in AMERICA .

  5. What there needs is for said politicians to willing to try to HELP us, rather than to call us names and disrespect us. We (Veterans) all vowed to defend the Constitution against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic, what we find is that they have invaded Congress.

  6. As a retired nurse I am aware of the problem in treating the symptoms of depression with suicide tendencies.
    I believe the only way to make certain that adequate care is available is to extend active duty with pay but hospital like action that is multi faceted to teach and treatments and therapy all in a safe place with 24/7 observation.

  7. Lawmakers address a genuine problem? Will you share whatever you’re on? Concocting an excuse to impeach the President is “oh so much more important!” If they’re so anxious to find somebody to impeach, I’m sure I could identify a few federal judges. Like the guy who just re-imposed his national ban in an asylum case despite the recent ruling by SCOTUS.

    Impeachment is a political, not a “legal” remedy. It is axiomatic that “good behavior” precludes rape or armed robbery. But full parameters of the standard have not been defined. Impeachment of a few federal judges would do wonders for the rule of law. The judiciary was not designed to be omnipotent.

  8. My father suffered from PTSD after his return to the US from a Japanese Prison Camp. He saw and suffered awful inhuman treatment. He spent several months in a hospital, gaining weight and hopefully getting some treatment. He died of Parkinson’s complications after having spent the last 10 days of his life reliving the Bataan Death March. All the treatment he was ever given was Valium. These men need to talk about their problems and people need to listen no matter how awful the stories. Their spouses, if they have one, and children all need counseling to understand that they are not the cause of the PTSD episodes. They just happen. You can’t pass a law that gives these men/women what they need.

  9. These hero’s deserve the best care possible as soon as possible and a support group to maintain that support for as long as it is needed. America’s Best deserve the Best !

  10. American Soldiers deserve all the help they can get..Food..Shelter…Clothes..medical care etc They should be 1st in Line and illegal immigrants at the end of the Line. My father served in the Air Force and he died before getting his Social Security Checks. He served 21 yrs in the Military and was at least able to collect some of his retirement pension from the Military. He was a Medic. He adopted me from an orphanage when I was 3 Years old. From Samurai Queen.

  11. What a shame that our lawmakers do not realize that these men and women need our help.Most of them only think about how they can get their next raise, the public needs to get into the act and help. We need to try to understand what they have been through. Their trauma comes from seeing friends getting blown away ,thinking they could be next. Try to be patient with them, they know what hell is and they have been through it.

  12. PTSD is now got a name it needs to have some support, WW1 and WW2 Korea and Viet Nam all had the same problems but it did not come to light in time for them. Please support helping the ones that are still here, everyone does not cope with problems the same way.

  17. Thanks for giving your ideas in this article. The other matter is that every time a problem comes up with a computer system motherboard, persons should not consider the risk connected with repairing that themselves because if it is not done right it can lead to irreparable damage to an entire laptop. It’s usually safe just to approach the dealer of any laptop for that repair of its motherboard. They’ve technicians who’ve an know-how in dealing with mobile computer motherboard issues and can carry out the right prognosis and undertake repairs.
