Emergency first responders are suffering from post-traumatic stress in record numbers,
but they are often afraid of losing their job if they ask for help; this must change.
PTSD911 is a documentary film about real people: normal, average human beings who have chosen to work in professions that require above average heroism, fortitude, and resolve. These men and women have jobs that require a willingness to face things that most of us can’t even imagine, yet maintain a high level of dignity and professionalism. First responders in fact repeatedly see and experience things that most of us will never see, causing compound issues related to post-traumatic stress injuries and disorders.
PTSD911 is produced and directed by Conrad Weaver, winner of a 2020 TIVA-DC Peer Gold Award for his 2018 film, Heroin’s Grip. Conrad also received a 2015 Mid-America Regional EMMY® award for his 2014 documentary, The Great American Wheat Harvest.
