Join NYSHealth on April 25, 12pm, for a conversation with the Patton Veterans Project, an organization that uses video production and storytelling to help veterans and military families cope with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The Patton Veterans Project develops and runs workshops that give veterans the chance to learn about filmmaking and create short films about their service experience. The workshops enable veterans to connect with one another, make sense of their traumatic experiences, become more open to seeking care, and substantially reduce their PTSD symptoms.
The event will feature a panel discussion with Ben Patton, Founder and Executive Director; Rachel Yehuda, Ph.D., Director of the Mental Health Patient Care Center at the James J. Peters VA Medical Center; and filmmakers from the Patton Veterans Project workshops.
Lunch is provided. Register here.
