Do you believe we are loosing this battle? Who is responsible for enlightening others who were brought up in a military that looked down on mental health?

Veteran suicide should have just as much if not more attention than the Armed Forces current pet project SHARP( not meant as a slight on a great program but it is the flavor of the month for commanders of all levels).

Do you believe that is a correct statement?

Please keep it professional while discussing. Both SHARP and mental health are serious topics. Thank you.

SFC (Join to see), we are absolutely losing the battle at the moment. As a Veteran, and an advocate for suicide endangered Vets, I am very aware that Veterans are taking their own lives at rate of approximately 22 per day !! It is a terrible trend and one that must be stopped. Everyone can play a part just by taking an interest in the lives of the Veterans (and of course also the Service members) around them, especially those who are most often alone and/or depressed.
