Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) addressed the alarming suicide rate of veterans in an interview on HuffPost Live Friday.
Ryan explained that an average of 22 veterans commit suicide a day, which is "almost one an hour." The statistic appeared in the 2012 Suicide Data Report released by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The bill, Ryan continued, "tries to create ten centers around the United States in VA hospitals where they are pushing, promoting and studying these alternative techniques."
