Free EMDR for Gulf War Vets & Civilians

My friend Michael Burns is making a documentary about Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), one of the alternative therapies that has found much success in the PTSD community.

Today, I received this note from Michael:

... we're still looking for more people to talk to about PTSD, especially people who might be interested in free EMDR with a highly qualified therapist during this year who might be willing to be profiled in the film. We're especially looking for Gulf War vets.

If you're interested in participating you can read more about the film here and you can contact Michael directly at hello(at)emdrmovie.com. Tell him you heard about it from Michele Rosenthal; he'll take good care of you!

@Missi - What a great mission you're on. Just watched your intro video. You are a courageous and inspiring PTSDer! Hope to see you back here again.

If you'd like to write a guest post.... the 'Survivors Speak' feature on Tuesdays would be a great place to talk about your decision to go to law school and how you're using your PTSD experience to do some good.
