Masking Injury.

National Geographic's "Healing Soldiers" tells the story of those who have sustained brain trauma in battle, and are using art therapy to give faces to their pain. (The masks they've painted can be found in a gallery, here.) Says one soldier: "I think this is what started me kind of opening up and talking about stuff and actually trying to get better."
