Are we doing enough to address the mental health needs of U.S. veterans? Please join us for a screening of the Academy Award nominated documentary, Poster Girl, followed by a panel discussion. The film puts a face on women Iraq vets and the difficulties they face seeking treatment for trauma experienced during the war. It follows veteran Robynn Murray, and the irony of of Murray being a “poster girl” for the military.
