Hopefully, you watched our panel discussion on mental health or listened to the audio on Monday’s podcast. Today’s episode is an extension of that conversation. Coming out of that YouTube Live event, there were a number of things I wanted to ask that just didn’t fit into our program. So, the following day, I met with Dr. Wendy Tenhula to learn more about her role at VA, the progress we’ve seen in Veterans seeking treatment for mental health issues, and the value Make the Connection has for our Veterans who want to learn more.
