Dr and Mrs Somers with Sandra Bond Chapman, Ph.D., founder and chief director of the Center for BrainHealth

Daniel Somers was just 30 years old when he committed suicide after suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder after serving in the Army in Iraq. Since then, his parents have been on a mission to improve access to mental health for veterans. This hour, we’ll talk to Howard and Jean Somers about the mental health needs of veterans, which they’ll speak about tonight during a public forum at the University of Texas at Dallas.
