I interview a mental health counselor and coach, with vast experience working with military members, Carmella Navarro, LCPC. Ms. Navarro was in charge of suicide prevention for the 85th ARSC (Army Reserve Support Command). She is currently retired from that position and building her private practice as both a counselor and coach, using Mental Freedom and Reality Therapy. In this interview, Carmella shares some of the challenges facing military members after deployment, including loss of purpose and suicidal ideation. If you or a family member is thinking of hurting themselves, please reach out to the Suicide Hotline by simply dialing 988 or go to Lifeline where you can chat online. If you'd like to reach out to Ms. Navarro, her email firstname.lastname@example.org.
