The Female Veteran Suicide Prevention Act was recently signed into law by President Obama. It requires the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to identify which VA mental health care and suicide prevention programs are most effective for women Veterans and those having the highest satisfaction rates among women Veterans. The new act will require additional appropriations to implement it as written. For more information, read the VA VAntage Point Blog.
