On September 24 Tri County Mental Health in collaboration with L/A Arts and Bates College will host a screening of the highly powerful documentary film, The Invisible War. The film, which has received critical acclaim and won the 2012 SunDance Film Festival Audience Award for U.S. Documentary, the Nestor Almendros Award for Courage in Film Making, 2012 Human Rights Watch Film Festival and the Silver Heart Award, Dallas International Film Festival, reveals a shameful United States Military cover up.
