CONCORD, N.H. (WCAX) - A bill in Congress aimed at helping first responders suffering from PTSD has local support.

New Hampshire Sen. Maggie Hassan joined a bipartisan group of colleagues to introduce the Fighting Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Act of 2023.

The goal is to help police, fire, emergency medical and 911 workers cope with the stresses of responding to crisis situations.

The bill would establish mental health programs for them and requires the Justice Department to help oversee the implementation.
