Please stay tuned after the 4:15 showing on March 25th for a Q & A with a clinically professional panel with representatives from the Helena Vet Center, the Center for Mental Health, Fort Harrison Behavioral Health and Suicide Prevention. Themes and topics to be discussed include PTSD, moral injury, symptomology, suicide and treatment for those surviving the combat experience.
Almost Sunrise follows two Iraq veterans, Tom Voss and Anthony Anderson, both tormented by depression for years after they returned home and pushed to the edge of suicide. The two embark on an extraordinary journey – a 2,700 mile walk across the country from Wisconsin to California, in order to reflect on their haunting experiences of war and to ultimately, save themselves.
