Free PTSD film available for veterans and their families

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – A Birmingham non-profit is reaching out to veterans in a unique way to spread awareness about PTSD and treatment options.

The Crosswinds Foundation with CrossSword Connection, and Front Porch Media to produce a 65-minute documentary called “Invisible Scars.”

The film highlights what veterans deal with after a post combat deployment and the struggles they face when transitioning back into post combat life.

Crosswinds Foundation President Bob Waldrep says the most challenging part of the process was finding a way to help veterans open up on camera. To do this they had veterans speak to each other about their shared experiences.

The film will premiere Thursday at 7:00 p.m. at Carmike Summit 16 in Birmingham.
