Jerry, that is a correct assessment. The system for assisting veterans in need of mental health care is broken in the sense that it is extremely difficult for those veterans to gain access to this type of care. I would guess funding is a significant contributing factor. We have been attempting to gain access for David to mental health care through a VA mental health facility for over 6 months, to no avail. That would have been prior to any of the aforementioned incidents. He was finally verbally accepted a month and a half ago and then when it came time to be admitted 2 weeks ago, we were told there was no longer room to accommodate him. It is a sad and frustrating situation to say the least.
