VA Whistle Blower speaks out

Until You Walk The Path, You Won’t Know Where it Goes will be chatting with veteran and VA whistle blower, Jeannette Taper on Wednesday, November 11, 2015 at 1 pm eastern.

Jeannette Taper has 30 years of combined military service. Like many other service members, she has experienced traumatic events that changed her life forever. The first was a simple back surgery between the T8-T9 that went wrong and she left the hospital in a wheel chair. The second event happened during her recovery from surgery, when she was sexual assaulted. That was the beginning of my journey to heal through hell. She was recruited by the VA to as a Peer Support Specialist. She was assigned to the Cheyenne Medical Center. She learned that of “Ethical Boundaries in the Patient-Clinician Relationships “ had very little meaning to other members of the staff.

Horses and Heroes combines the concepts a talk show with that of a documentary, by intertwining the spontaneity of a talk show with the scripted informational aspects of a documentary. It will utilize both interviews and practical demonstrations of horse therapy to give the audience a full understanding of how and why working with the horses help veterans heal. Although Equine Therapy will be the stage, the primary focus will be on the eight veterans as they sharing what they experienced while they served our country and how those events had a lasting effect on their lives as well as on those who love them.

Horses and Heroes is not about pointing fingers or creating a political firestorm. It is a documentary series, which will help military personnel and veterans find a new way to cope with the physical and emotional challenges brought into their lives by war. Equine Therapy does not involve drugs nor lying on a couch and spilling their guts to a therapist. What it does do is help them find new ways to see and react to their emotional triggers. It helps their bodies remember how it used to work. It can't replace what was lost, but it can give them the confidence to see that they are more than the sum of their body parts. Horses and Heroes will give veterans and military personnel the information they need to find alternative healing solutions, which can help lower the suicide rate.
