Florida Matters Preview: Veteran Suicide

Jun 27, 2017

The Department of Veterans Affairs has grown increasingly concerned about the rise in veteran suicides in recent years.

This week on Florida Matters we're talking about the impact these deaths have on comrades and loved ones, and what support is available to help them heal. It's the first episode in a special two-part program on this issue.


In this preview, Florida Matters host Robin Sussingham talks with Chaplain Linda Pugsley, a Vietnam veteran flight nurse and chaplain at MacDill Air Force Base, and Carla Stumpf-Patton with the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) about the importance of veterans and loved ones learning how to tell their own stories.
