PTSD: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder RAP and Video

This music video offers a snapshot of the journey a service member may go through when diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. It also is meant to give the general public an idea of what it’s like to experience PTSD, an “invisible wound.” The video is a joint production of A Backpack Journalist and the Nashville Film Institute.

A Backpack Journalist is a service that helps military kids find their voice and build resiliency through writing, music, broadcast journalism, filmmaking and poetry. Components of this music video, PTSD Won’t Stop ME, aRAP section, and a chorus and chant. A Backpack Intern  (USARC) performs the RAP. There’s video, courtesy of DVIDS – Department of Defense,  that depicts combat related scenes, as well as homecomings and other military related events.

The video production staff’s request: Provide kindness, understanding and support to the returning service members!
