ALBERT LEA, Minn.- All of the staff at the Albert Lea Veterans Clinic participated in a 20-minute walk to honor the 20 veterans every day who take their own lives.

"I hope that people will become more aware of the signs and symptoms of suicide and know that there's help out there."

Mental illness knows no boundaries, so those at the event encourage veterans and families or friends of veterans to educate themselves about the warning signs and red flags of suicide. 

Those participating in Wednesday's walkout say they hope by doing that, they can spread awareness and start a conversation.
