May 9, 2019 12:00 ET

Recently President Trump signed an Executive Order that has the potential of lowering the suicide rate in our military/veteran community for the first time. Donald Trump is the first President in modern times to see the potential of faith-based solutions to this national health crisis of military/veteran suicide. Currently, an average of 21 military/veterans are taking their lives each day. This is after 15 years of studies and over 900 suicide prevention programs at the Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration and billions of dollars spent. Join Richard Glickstein as he shares the compelling evidence that proves faith-based solutions reduce suicides, speed the recovery of PTSD, and build resiliency.
