Veteran Mental Health Services Will See Increase In Those Seeking Treatment

The United States Department of Veteran Affairs had been preparing for an increase in mental health services.

Our country is nearing the 20-year marker of the 9/11 attacks. It comes as veterans are grappling with the collapse of the Afghanistan government.

“It’s kind of disturbing to watch it,” said veteran Rick Murillo. He spent 11 years in the Army. Murillo did five tours in Afghanistan, says he was shot multiple times and is now disheartened by the chaos overseas.

“You build a relationship there and then for us to step away the way we did, and to watch our friends that we’ve made – people we call family – just been left aside there is just an emotional thing for a lot of people,” said Murillo.
