VA asks for input on Veteran suicide

Ending Veteran Suicide RFI
When the President signed executive order "PREVENTS," creating an inter-agency task force, leadership within VA and the White House began planning a road map to address the national tragedy of Veteran suicide.
They now ask for your help. The PREVENTS Task Force is releasing an RFI (Request for Information) to get your ideas in radically reducing suicide among Veterans. 
"Veteran suicide requires an all-hands on-deck approach" said VA Secretary Robert Wilkie.
