On Tuesday, U.S. astronaut and Veteran Buzz Aldrin took to Twitter to say, “The loss of Robin Williams is tragic. Like him, I and many veterans also suffer from depression. All Americans should awaken to this.”

Mental health is just as important as physical health. If you, or someone you know is suffering from depression, there is help out there.

If you or somebody else is in emotional distress, or if you’re concerned about suicide, you can call: 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255). For emergency help, you can always dial 9-1-1.

Building on the Progress of Large Wireless Carriers, FCC Establishes Timetable for Remaining Text Messaging Providers to Support Text-to-911

Washington, D.C. –The Federal Communications Commission today adopted rules requiring text messaging providers to enable Americans to text 911 in an emergency. Building on commitments made by America’s four largest wireless carriers to support text-to-911 by May 2014, the new rules will ensure that all remaining wireless carriers and certain IP-based text application providers are prepared to support text-to-911 by the end of the year. After that time, if a 911 call center requests text-to-911, text messaging providers will have six months to deploy the service in that area.

On July 23, 2014, the Attorney General signed the Department's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) proposing to revise the Department's Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) title III regulation to require movie theaters to exhibit movies with closed movie captioning and audio description, to require theaters to provide notice to the public about the availability of these services, and to ensure that theaters have staff available who can provide information to patrons about the use of these services. This NPRM will soon be published in the Federal Register. Once it is published, there will be a 60-day comment period.

To find out more about the ADA or this NPRM, call the Justice Department's toll-free ADA Information Line at 800-514-0301 or 800-514-0383 (TDD), or access its www.ada.gov website.
