Free Press FREE Movie: “War in the Mind” Tuesday, February 28 and Discussion

Tuesday, February 28, 2012• 7:30pm – 9:00pm – followed by discussion.
Director Judy Jackson has taken a tough emotional journey in this penetrating study of PTSD and our young war veterans. It’s called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: the unending echo of battle etched in the brain may affect up to 15% of soldiers by some estimates. It can destroy families, and can leave its sufferers unable to work, addiction addled and changed. All the soldiers who bravely speak out in this film are doing so because they want us to understand what they endure. They also want to reach out to others who are suffering in silence, and may feel the only way of ending their pain is ending their lives. War in the Mind also investigates the issue of soldier suicide. Statistics from past and present wars tell the sad story of the magnitude of this problem. Families who have felt invisible, their sons’ stories unacknowledged, tell of the impact of their loss.
