Trump Hosts Event On Curbing Veterans' Suicides


President Trump wants to end the "national tragedy of suicide" among veterans. Hosting a White House event, Trump unveiled recommendations from the PREVENTS Task Force that are aimed at preventing suicides. "There’s no single solution to this issue," Trump offered. "Every resource must be brought to bear."

According to the White House has noted six-thousand veterans took their own lives in 2017 alone. On that note, Trump also said his administration has reformed the V-A from top to bottom, including firing bad administrators and healthcare professionals – and expediting care.

A White House statement said the task force recommendations are designed to "ensure effective coordinated action among federal agencies and public organizations" while establishing a "new public health campaign to improve veterans' awareness of mental health resources available" across the country.
