Preston's Gone

Preston Thornton, an Army veteran, was experiencing paranoid delusions at his home. After calling the Veteran’s Crisis line, deputies arrived to transport Preston to a hospital, and tragedy followed. The film asks how a veteran ended up dead and what could have been done to prevent his death. The answers lead to broken mental health care system that’s failing Louisiana’s most vulnerable residents.
