On March 5, 2019, President Trump signed Executive Order 13861, The President’s Roadmap to Empower Veterans and End a National Tragedy of Suicide (PREVENTS). This Executive Order created a dedicated Task Force to coordinate efforts across the Government and to build a national strategy focused on improving overall mental health to prevent suicide. To lead this multi-agency national effort, Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen, was selected as Executive Director of the PREVENTS Task Force.

The landmark legislation of the Mission Act will fundamentally change VA healthcare; this will allow the VA to combine VA and locally offered services to best meet the health needs of the Veteran wherever they might be. Understanding the implementation and integration across VA operations will be of critical importance to the Military health paradigm.
