Watch: President Trump Signs Order to End Veteran Suicide

President Trump participates in a signing ceremony for an Executive Order on the “National Roadmap to Empower Veterans and End Veteran Suicide.”

The order creates a new high-level task force on preventing veterans suicide which will include new community outreach grants aimed at former service members and expanded projects across a host of government agencies to coordinate research and prevention efforts.

Veteran suicide claims an estimated 20 veterans each day and this order is the latest in a series of steps by the Trump administration to lessen the crisis.

The president is directing the task force to develop a new grant system for mental health support and outreach similar to the Housing and Urban Development-VA Supportive Housing program, which provides funding directly to local charities and city programs to help get homeless veterans off the street.
