Every day, 17 Veterans die by suicide. That’s 6,205 service members a year.

Casualties of a private war, many of these men and women survive the horrors of the battlefield only to struggle with a hidden enemy within. But, as one Veteran reminds us…. there is always hope. We will hear her story and talk with Dr. Michael Tragakis, a psychologist, and Suicide Prevention Clinical Director with the VA Salt Lake City Health Care System on the warning signs and treatments of suicide.
