We lose 22 Vets a day to suicide. The numbers don't lie. Our #RealConvo today is with,Katie Fisher-McVeigh, a retired Air Force Veteran with five years active duty and fifteen as a Reservist. She was also the Board Chair for American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Capital Region NY.
Her story is one of strength and resilience. Today is Veterans Day in the States. We thank our Vets for their service, sacrifice and heroism.
Today we talk about military sexual trauma, the stigmas of mental illness in the armed forces and if there is anything civilians can do to help our service people on their road to adjusting to life outside the uniform.
