Greenwich Entertainment will release Here. Is. Better., the award-winning documentary film with unprecedented access inside therapy sessions of men and women Veterans battling post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Directed by Emmy Award-winner Jack Youngelson, Here. Is. Better. premiered at the Woodstock Film Festival and will be released in theaters on June 23, 2023, with a VOD release to follow on all major platforms timed to National PTSD Awareness Day on June 27, 2023.

A soldier’s story is always personal, but never more than in Here. Is. Better. This powerful feature length documentary offers a uniquely hopeful and impactful perspective on a rising mental health crisis in America. Every year, nearly 13 million adults suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the U.S. alone. Veterans are up to three times more likely to have PTSD than civilians.

Here. Is. Better. follows four of these Veterans, each with diverse backgrounds and service experience, as they undergo the most clinically effective, evidence-based trauma psychotherapies for PTSD. Individuals featured in the film include former presidential hopeful Jason Kander, who shocked many when he left the Kansas City mayoral race in 2018 to seek treatment; a Vietnam War Veteran still haunted by events that occurred over 50 years ago; and the voices of so often overlooked women Veterans, all seeking the keys to unlock their places of hurt and pain.

With unprecedented access to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Here. Is. Better. interweaves these inspiring stories of men and women Veterans overcoming the debilitating effects of PTSD with treatments that can work, bringing hope to millions.

The film features a score composed by David Baron and Jeremiah Fraites of the GRAMMY-nominated band The Lumineers, an original song by Josin, and an original end credit song by David Kushner and Wesley Schultz of The Lumineers.
