Talkback Live for April 3, 2022 – Military Suicide / Cumberland Clean & Fayetteville Beautiful Download

30:48 Download April 3rd

Barry Bowden, Accelerate Counseling and Consulting , former Army Chaplain and trained Counselor – working primarily (but not exclusively) with Veterans – a sizable population in Fayetteville. 

In Fayetteville, like many military communities, many veterans who have retired here found themselves in a “mission-focused” status during their active-duty careers.  In the prevalent “Suck up your gut and go” atmosphere of military duty, it is common that many profound, traumatizing life experiences were left deferred and unprocessed!  This, and a stigma equating mental health problems and the counseling vital to easing them with weakness, have led to a multiplicity of problems:  higher than normal rates of suicide, domestic violence, stress and other mental health issues.  Barry reassured our listeners help is non-stigmatizing, readily available and easy to reach out for!
