Veterans United Live With Crew of “The Runner & The Therapist” Documentary
You can watch our Hangout live on this page on April 22 at 7 p.m. ET
A new documentary seeks to put a face on the invisible wounds of war.
Give an Hour is a nonprofit group with a mission to develop national networks of volunteers capable of responding to acute and chronic conditions within communities.
Veterans United is hosting a Google+ Hangout to talk about Give an Hour’s “Indiegogo Campaign” to finance an important documentary. The documentary, written, directed and produced by Charlie Stuart, depicts the courage it takes to talk about the stigmas behind mental health.
The documentary features the stories of Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen and Marine Corps veteran Brendan O’Toole. The film reflects on O’Toole’s time in Afghanistan and the help he sought after returning home. Dr. Van Dahlen also shares about her own family’s history of mental illness.
