What Everyone Should Know About Suicide Prevention (with Garrett Cathcart)

What Everyone Should Know About Suicide Prevention (with Garrett Cathcart)

It’s no secret within the military community that suicide is a problem, especially in the veteran community. Since it’s National Suicide Awareness Month, now is a good time to discuss what everyone should know and do to help with suicide prevention within our military family. I’ve invited Garrett Cathcart, the Executive Director of Mission Roll Call, to have this meaningful discussion. Garrett is a graduate of the United States Military Academy and a combat veteran, having served as a Cavalry Scout with the Army. His and Mission Roll Call’s entire purpose is to give veterans a voice on issues impacting their lives. And one of those big issues is veteran suicide.
