In this film you will meet Brian, who has experienced post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)—a disorder triggered by the experience of trauma and characterized by unwanted memories and flashbacks, heightened physical or emotional reactions, and negative changes in mood. Listen to his story, and explore the ways that your local parish can support mental health and transform the lives of Catholics living with mental health problems.
(This film is not graphic, but it references military experience and suicide.)
