Marines and Sailors from Camp Lejeune and Cherry Point heard from speakers Wednesday about how to face personal issues after war.

The program, "Heroes and Healthy Families," featured speakers on topics like substance abuse, post traumatic stress and suicide.

Organizers say that 97-percent of the service members that sit through the program say it's helpful.

In 2011 there have been 66 suspected suicide attempts and 10 suspected suicides in the United States Marine Corps.
