Where Does the Battlefield End?
According to the Department of Veterans Affairs study, 20 Veterans die each day by suicide. Feelings of disconnection between their experience and the experience of those around them can lead to a sense of isolation from their families and the community.
Where can veterans and service members turn for mental health support? How do military family members find help? To further this discussion, the NNDC has partnered with the consumer advocacy group Care For Your Mind on a blog series authored by experts and advocates for reform who share their personal experience.
Over the course of the next 18 months, Visionalist Entertainment Productions and filmmaker Keith Famie will embark on a quest to find answers by traveling the globe meeting with professionals, authors, and everyday people in an attempt to unravel the mysteries of that one question we are all left with when a suicide tragedy occurs... WHY?!
The National Network of Depression Centers and affiliates are proud to sponsor the upcoming PBS documentary Death is Not the Answer. Keep on the lookout for this up-and-coming film!
