In a profession that few ever see, and even fewer understand, a crisis breeds among today’s first responders. Over 37% meet clinical diagnosis for PTSD, and most go untreated and even unrecognized. In a culture where showing vulnerability means showing weakness, this ground-breaking documentary attempts to break down these barriers and smash mental health stigma in the fire service.
Free film screening followed by an impactful community panel discussion. Hear from filmmakers, film participants, first responders, and health professionals as we discuss the conversation that’s not being had enough and work to illuminate a crisis in order to stop the stigma and support change.
