Obama signs suicide prevention act

Previously aired: President Obama signs the Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans Act. The bill is named after a Marine who struggled with post-traumatic stress disorder after serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, and eventually killed himself in 2011. The measure creates both a pilot program to help veterans transition out of active duty and a website to provide veterans with information about available mental health services.
