Episode Info: JJ is joined by Kyleanne Hunter, who in addition to her work as VP of programs for Brady, is a US Marine Corps combat veteran who served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan as an AH-1W “Super Cobra” attack pilot. They're chatting today with Ted Bonar, a clinical psychologist specializing in veterans, PTSD, depression, and gun safety. The topics range today, from--"Do veterans liked to be thanked for their service? Is Veteran's day triggering? How can you have a conversation with a veteran about gun safety? Can we talk about mental health in a clear way?"In this episode, we cover: why Veteran's day can be tough on active-duty military and veterans;why thanking veterans for their service is complicated;how to ask the hard questions about depression, PTSD, and suicide;and how to keep those we love, and ourselves, safe from gun violence. JJ and Ky also discuss what happens when guns are raffled off in schools (spoiler: it's not good!), a pretty big GVP hero, and why we need to talk more about suicide when we talk about gun violence. Some of the links mentioned in this episode :"the Truth about Suicide and Guns.""How to Support Survivors and People Impacted by Gun Violence."Kyleanne Hunter: As a Marine, I was trained to handle guns.
