Walk With Frank is a film about self discovery, mental health, and one man’s journey towards understanding and embracing PTSD.

As an infantry soldier, Frank was ambushed in the jungles of Vietnam and barely survived, sending him down a dark spiral which led to drug and alcohol abuse, prison time, and family troubles. He eventually discovered painting as a way to begin his lifelong mission of healing himself and helping others discover their own path forward.

For his 70th birthday Frank decided to walk across New York State as a way to gain attention to his cause, his education curriculum, and to give a voice to so many suffering from PTSD. By walking, Frank hopes to shed light on the true experience of the American soldier, the ongoing struggles facing the mental health and homeless communities, and hopefully inspire others to open up about their own mental illness.
