It’s estimated that in the United States some 22 veterans commit suicide every day.

“It is a tragedy, one that we have to deal with,” Michigan Democratic Senator Gary Peters said. “In my mind we have a sacred obligation to take care of those who have served us overseas, so we need to address it immediately.”

Peters spoke with Stateside host Cyndy Canty today to discuss legislation he is co-sponsoring.

It would try to improve mental health care for veterans and help them deal with some of the mental health issues associated with suicides.
