My staff is trained to recommend state resources that are available to Ohioans. When you encounter difficulty resolving an issue, please don’t hesitate to call me and ask for help. Recently, a family member of one of our soldiers brought to my attention the distressing veteran suicide rates. He wanted to know how his state was addressing the issue. After some research, I was able to follow-up with him and bring to his attention a multi-agency program in Ohio that monitors and helps veterans with mental health issues.
