Military Mental Illness

Hosted by

A new series of reports says many soldiers already suffered from mental health issues before they enter the army. The studies found that nearly a quarter had a common issue like depression or anxiety -- that’s twice as many as in the civilian population. We get the details of the report, and we hear from a vet who now works with soldiers once they come home.
