The Brandon Act, honoring fallen Arizona sailor, passes Senate

The Brandon Act, if approved, would make it easier for service members to seek mental health treatment confidentially. The bill is named after Arizona sailor Brandon Caserta, who died by suicide a few years ago while serving in the Navy. The bill received bipartisan support and was sponsored by U.S. Senator Mark Kelly. “For months, I worked with Republicans and Democrats to get the language of the Brandon Act in the defense bill," Kelly said.
