Mr. Speaker, I want to share this with my colleague and get her comments. I had a situation where I needed to call Veterans Affairs. I called 411 and got the number. After 4:30, the response was “Thank you for calling Veterans Affairs. If this is an emergency dial 911 or go to the closest hospital.” What if a veteran who is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and is contemplating suicide, and there are a lot of triggers there, calls that number?
I am wondering if my colleague has any thoughts or anything to share about how this veteran would react.
