Resources for Youth and Adults Coping with School Shootings

Our thoughts are with the families that have suffered tragedy both locally and nationally due to the gun violence that has taken place. We realize that there are so many unanswered questions that not only young people may have but adults as well. We have attached are some resources from the National Child Traumatic Stress Network that have been developed to assist families, teachers, and community members around the recent school shootings.  Please feel free to disseminate these resources.
