There are a number of mental conditions that can affect a Saint Louis resident. Although many of these conditions can be treated with medication and therapy, some are so severe that, despite efforts, they still cause a person extreme distress.

For these individuals, life can be tough, and finances can be tight.
Serving our country through the military is no small feat, especially in today's world.

Though this care is wide-ranging, there are gaps that leave some wondering what can be done to change the system.
