Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1 DVD

SKU ID #572292
$19.98
Today, more military members are lost to suicide than on the battlefield. After serving their country overseas, many veterans in their darkest moments turn to the unique services of the Veterans Crisis Line to help with traumas like post-traumatic stress, depression, homelessness and drug dependence. This 40-minute documentary is an intimate look at the vital work of several responders who provide life-saving intervention and desperately needed referrals through the 24-hour Veterans Crisis Line, which provides support and hope to active and retired service members. Directed by Ellen Goosenberg Kent (Wartorn: 1861-2010, Alive Day Memories: Home from Iraq), and produced by Dana Perry (Boy Interrupted), the film focuses on the intense, and at times chilling, calls received by the crisis line and the dedicated work of the responders and rescue coordinators who help distraught veterans find reasons to live.

          I'm using this DVD in a graduate class for Marriage and Family Therapists to exposure the stress of doing crisis counseling work and also to alert them to the needs of Vets with PTSD symptoms. This is an excellent use of this DVD.
