President Donald Trump signed a new executive order on Tuesday, mandating that the Defense, Veterans Affairs and Homeland Security departments work to develop a joint action plan to ensure all veterans separating from service have access to mental health services for a year after their separation from active duty, regardless of their service connected disability rating.

According to the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, roughly 60 percent of newly separated veterans do not qualify for enrollment in VA mental health care upon release from active duty, primarily because of a lack of verified service connection for issues that present themselves. That first year, however, is a particularly high risk period of time, as veterans 3 to 12 months out of active service are a whopping three times more likely to commit suicide than they were while still on active duty.

Trump’s new executive order, however, will require that the VA provide treatment for mental health issues like depression, anxiety, and PTSD to veterans within the first year after separation regardless of verified service connected disabilities.

We want them to get the highest care and the care that they so richly deserve, and I’ve been working very hard on that with [VA Secretary David J. Shulkin] and with everybody. It’s something that is a top priority,” the president said upon signing the order. “We will not rest until all of America’s great veterans receive the care they’ve earned through their incredible service and sacrifice to our country.”
