Last Sunday marked the one-year anniversary of the signing of the Commander John Scott Hannon Veterans Mental Health Care Improvement Act. Senator Jon Tester sent NAMI Montana this redline version of the bill in order to commemorate our work on it together. I’m so grateful to the Hannon family, Senator Tester, Senator Jerry Moran, Senate Veterans Affairs Committee Staff, NAMI Montana’s amazing donors, the Trans-Montana Snowmobile Charity Ride, and everyone helped support this effort. Also, thankful for the VA staff who have so graciously allowed us to stay involved with the implementation of the Hannon Precision Brain Health Initiative to help ensure more veterans with brain health conditions get the right care at the right time. The overall effort is such a powerful memorial to a dear friend and ally, but we are only getting started.
