Join GPPA member Tim Murphy, PhD for a special early viewing of the film Hacksaw Ridge. The intention of this viewing is to begin a community dialogue on topics for veterans and how society deals with those who take a stand on an issue, as well as the subjects of courage, conflict and patriotism.

Priority tickets will be given to those who treat clients with PTSD, trauma, and veterans.  Also at the showing will be students, veterans, teachers and faith leaders. 

There are additional readings and resources at www.Hacksawridgeresources.com

Tickets are free, but registration is required.
