Beer is Cheaper than Therapy

The town of Fort Hood is a military installation in Texas, once best known for its celebrity trainee Elvis Presley.

In 2009 it became infamous when a military psychiatrist indiscriminately shot and killed 13 soldiers waiting for care.

A town of only 300,000, the majority of who are under the age of 34 and working in the armed forces, its suicide rate in 2010 was double that of the national average.and on the rise.

Beer is Cheaper Than Therapy is a poignant documentary offering a voice to those who are often lost in the discourse on war - the veterans themselves.

Features an introduction from war veteran Jim Wain.
