Under Fire: Journalists in Combat is a Canadian documentary that explores post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and substance abuse among war correspondents. This CJF Forum examines the changing nature of covering war, the psychological costs of war reporting, and the need for change in newsroom culture to help detect and address the problems correspondents face.
