Every day 21 veterans are overcome by mental, psychological, and emotional stress and die by suicide. That number is far too high. We must take action to protect the brave men and women who protect our country through their service. Recent studies demonstrate that disciplined religious practice helps veterans build resilience against depression and suicidal thoughts. Join us for a discussion with experts on this important topic. The discussion will be followed by a screening of the award-winning short film, Surrender Only to One, which features the stories of veterans who have struggled with post-traumatic stress disorder.
