Efforts to Reduce the Rate of Veteran Suicide

North Carolina has six military bases and a statewide Governor’s Working Group focused on reducing veteran suicide. There are many, many people focusing on veteran’s mental health. Yet somehow the suicide rate increased 13% from 188 veteran suicides in 2005 to 212 in 2017, according to the 2019 National Veteran Suicide Prevention Annual Report. What’s going on, and how can we reverse that trend? Join this discussion virtually on Thursday evening with Jeff Smith, DHHS Military and Veterans Program Liaison (lower picture) and Marine Corps Veteran and Executive/Life Coach Glenn Proctor.
