Art helps veterans deal with PTSD

More veterans are suffering from PTSD right now than ever before in our history. Meet veterans who live with the scars of war and see how art has helped them overcome their anger, fear and depression. They explain why it has been valuable to engage with other veterans. We’ll also hear from the founders of this program about the changes that happen to vets when they have an outlet.
