Mental Hell and Wellness

14 Episodes

What started as a research project evolved into Mental Hell and Wellness, a new web series from VET Tv that helps veterans understand their mind in order to live a life they don’t want to end. VET Tv sat down with mental health professionals to uncover the therapeutic power of dark humor while introducing the tools needed to undo the “brainwashing” experienced in the military. This includes a breakdown of VET Tv’s #1 Series, A Grunt’s Life - a deep dive into the psychology of the show as well as a character analysis of Lt. Murphy.

In Mental Hell and Wellness, we discuss the ways that the military mindset serves to win wars but isn’t as helpful for good mental health post-service.
VET Tv has always believed that humor is a powerful steppingstone to improving veterans’ mental health. We hope you enjoy the series.
