MHLP Professor Goes "Beyond the Numbers" in an Interview on Veteran Suicides

Larry Schonfeld, PhD, was recently interviewed by WUSF's Bobbie O'Brien about veteran suicide research. Though the VA claims an average of 22 veterans commit suicide every day, most of these are elderly vets who did not see combat. Dr. Schonfeld states that it can be difficult to gather data on veteran suicide and that it's important to find the reasons behind veteran suicide so effective treatment and prevention programs can be developed.
