Every day, 20 veterans take their own lives. The recently appointed Veterans Affairs Secretary, David Shulkin, says that is 20 lives too many and what the VA has found is that 14 out of 20 of those veterans were outside of the VA’s system of care. Shulkin wants to help mitigate that with a new policy of opening mental health care services to veterans who were discharged less than honorably. Shulkin sits down with Soledad O’Brien for a conversation on how to address this crisis.
