20 a day - active duty or Veterans commit suicide - and every 65 minutes a veteran or active duty takes their own life.... We won't to impact the community in such a way so that this number is decreased to zero.
First - Our intent is to tell the raw story – the raw story of the “military experience” downrange, the dynamic while deployed, the pivotal moments when they return home, and ultimately how they navigate the CIVILIAN workplace, the community and most significantly, their home with their loved ones. THE RAW Story has many layers AND we intend to delve and dig deep during intense interviews as they share how they navigate the rough terrain of civilian life after multiple deployments, how they maintain emotional healthy relationships within their community of fellow Veterans as well as their “tribe.”
We will talk to major players at the Department of Veterans Affairs. We will ask bold questions to these experts. (e.g., How can they better serve Veterans and their families? What can VA providers do better and also discuss the paradigm shift to client centered -and their whole health initiative.
We will delve into the latest research on how to best serve Veterans and their families, University of South Carolina’s Dr. Aubrey Sugeit will present straightforward evidence of combating PTSD. We will interview other Professors at Rutgers University in NJ conducting research involving effective therapies for Veterans to heal from PTSD.
We will ask bold questions to politicians fighting on the frontlines every day for Veterans. (e.g., What are local and state politicians doing right now to take action?) We will interview Joe Wilson in SC and other politicians to explore real political change (Columbia, Philadelphia, New Jersey, etc.)
And finally present a Call to Action – What outcomes do the military and Veteran community want to realize for our nation’s heroes? What the community at large can do to help? We will provide local resources for each state/region in the U.S.
