TLP 271 - Mental Illness & Firearms: Bridging The Gap
Welcome to another episode of the Talking Lead Podcast! We are talking mental health and firearms this episode with fellow Lead Head, President of Eagle Imports and founder of Walk The Talk America (WTTA), Mike Sodini. On the heals of the recent mass shooting murders at the Borderline Bar and Grill in California this is a timely topic you do not want to miss. The guys discuss misconceptions about the roles that both the mental health system and firearms play in problems of gun violence, negligence and suicide.
Mike talks about how he was inspired to bring the mental health industry and the firearms industry together by creating the non-profit organization called Walk The Talk America - WTTA. Historically, both industries care deeply about this issue but have never been connected. WalktheTalkAmerica.org is a way to bring our industries together. The professionals and academics from both industries are moving forward with combining efforts, information, and resources to achieve our vision for the future.
