An estimated 20 veterans die by suicide every day, according to the latest Veterans Affairs report. September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and K9s for Warriors is working with veterans to raise awareness.

The group provides service dogs to military veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injuries and military sexual trauma.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss their experience with K9s for Warriors and their special bond with their service dog are Rebecca Stephens and Will Rommel.
