PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A new public access television show in Rhode Island features interviews with veterans about their experiences in war and how they cope with burdens they carry.
The Providence VA Medical Center and East Bay Television collaborated on it. The first episode is on the center's Facebook page.
Each month, Nathan Stein, a clinical psychologist and suicide prevention coordinator at the medical center, will interview two veterans.
He says he hopes the veterans' courage in sharing their stories will inspire others to open up about their experiences and struggles, and ask for help when they need it.
Episodes of the half-hour show will air in Providence on Sundays at 5:30 p.m. and Mondays at 9 p.m. It's scheduled to be shown on Channel 13 through Cox and Full Channel, and on Channel 32 through Verizon.
