Event Details

Join WQED Multimedia for a pre-screening of the new, locally produced documentary, Long Road Home, before it airs on WQED-TV. With support from the Staunton Farm Foundation, Long Road Home explores the impact of wartime Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It includes the compelling stories of Pittsburgh-area veterans coping and healing after combat in Iraq, Vietnam, Korea, and World War II. The documentary also explores current treatments and research into PTSD among returning veterans. 

 

WQED will provide free educational materials designed to help children in military families cope with the challenges of a caregiver’s return from duty.

 

Screening will begin at 6:30 p.m., with a discussion panel immediately following. 


This event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited.

Limited free parking is available in both the WQED staff and visitor parking lots after 5:00 p.m., with additional free overflow parking available in the Carnegie Mellon parking lot located at Forbes and Morewood Avenues (after 5:00 p.m.)
