On January 12th 2010 a devastating earthquake hit Haiti. More than 220,000 people were killed and over 300,000 were injured. Of those who survived, many were suffering from various forms of PTSD. One year after the tragedy the Center for Mind Body Medicine arrived in Haiti to train healthcare workers in how to deal with the effects of PTSD. Using a combination of therapies including talk therapy, meditation, yoga and other body movement techniques, they taught healthcare workers how to heal their patients as well as themselves. CMBM hired Nomadic Pictures to make a series of short films that would capture their humanitarian work.
