Project 22 Offers Hope for Depression and Suicide
Lapeer County Community Mental Health invites you to a screening of the movie documentary “Project 22”. It will be tonight (6/21) from 6:00 to 9:00 PM at the American Legion Post 16 in Lapeer on M-21. This is a documentary made by two combat veterans who traveled cross country on their motorcycles to find hope for the record number (average of 22 each day) of veterans who die by suicide. This number includes younger generation veterans who suffer with PTSD and depression as well as our older generation veterans from WWII, Korea and Vietnam. They talked to lots of vets and visited many treatment centers and learned a lot about alternative treatments available to treat things like PTSD.
Also tonight there will be a benefits fair for veterans and a raffle for prizes plus free pizza, salad and bread sticks.
Everyone is invited to come support our service members and join us in finding hope for our returning veterans and anyone who may be having thoughts of suicide.
