NECN Documentary Examines PTSD Among Iraq War Vets

Jeff Lucey, a Belchertown, Mass. Marine, killed himself. He is one of several soldiers from the Iraq War who are profiled in a new documentary called “Hidden Wounds,” to be aired on New England Cable News this week. The film is about Americans who have been exposed to the trauma of war and find it difficult to adapt to life back home. Their injuries are not so much physical — they’re emotional casualties known as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD. WFCR’s Tina Antolini spoke with documentary producer Iris Adler about these Hidden Wounds. If you are a veteran in need of help, the website for the upcoming documentary includes a list of resources available to you across New England.
