Finding help in the midst of tragedy

With the onslaught of violence and heartbreaking loss in our communities and country recently, many might be experiencing feelings of sadness, anxiety and anger. Even when we don’t have a personal connection to the victims, our sympathetic tendencies can leave us reeling. These emotional reactions are a natural result of the somber events we’ve seen play out far too often over the past several months.

We encourage people to connect with friends, family and community resources to explore ways to cope with these emotions.  It’s important to know that there are specialists who can provide support, guidance and a sympathetic ear, whenever you feel like you need them.
