Searching for Home: Coming Back from War
The film is an emotional and unflinching look at returning veterans and their search for the “home” they left behind—physically, mentally, and spiritually. From World War II, Korea, and Vietnam to modern-day conflicts, Searching for Home is a multigenerational documentary that chronicles the journey of the men and women who have left “home,” only to return to new and difficult challenges as profoundly changed people.
After the invitation-only screening there was a Q&A session with director Eric Christiansen; Stanford psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amit Etkin, scientific advisor to the film; and featured veterans including Russ Toll, Stanford bioengineering graduate student.
PTSD impacts as many as 20 percent of combat veterans as well as an untold number of adults and children worldwide who experience traumatic events and environments. Learn why acceleration of research in PTSD is urgently needed, and how Dr. Etkin and his Stanford colleagues are leading efforts to integrate new scientific discoveries with novel treatment solutions.
