The Department of Veterans Affairs discovered a 98 percent rise in the number of standards for mental health between the years 2006 and 2021.
On Memorial Day, a lot of people in the United States are thinking about the people who died while serving their country.
But despite this, there is still a problem that is rarely brought up: since the attacks of September 11, 2001, more veterans have died by suicide than in combat.
According to research conducted at Brown University and Boston University, more than 30,000 members of the United States armed forces, both active duty and veterans, who served in conflicts fought after September 11, 2001, took their own lives. This number is at least four times higher than the 7,000 service members who were killed in action during this period.
According to the data provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs of the United States, the criteria for veterans’ mental health grew by a factor of 98 between the years 2006 and 2021.
“We make people so powerful that they live beyond their humanity in many aspects and regard themselves as beyond the need for help,” Sherman Gillums Jr., strategy and impact officer for the National Alliance on Mental Illness, said in an interview with the reporters that “we make people so powerful that they regard themselves as beyond the need for help… until the bottom falls out.”
According to Gillums, there is no distinction between the wealthy and the poor when it comes to issues related to mental health and the challenges that are associated with mental health when it reaches a problematic state.
” The only thing that changes is whether or not we can keep it a secret and whether or not we seek help.
