Soldier suicides increasing

READ MORE:
Soldier suicides are increasing at an alarming rate. But help may be on the way for troops battling mental health issues and their families. Congressman Robin Hayes is pushing a bill to reduce the mental health stigma among troops, increase mental health and suicide prevention training, establish a crisis response team and require mental health follow up for troops returning from combat. The Army says suicides and attempted suicides are up 20 percent compared to last year. Some blame the stress of a prolonged war and extended deployments.
