Robb Elementary School Shootings Response and Recovery Resources

Acts of mass violence, such as the shootings at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas cause extreme disruption within communities. Acts of violence against children are particularly distressing, and their occurrence at locations often thought of as safe havens, such as schools, undermine feelings of safety. Victims, family, friends, first responders, emergency personnel, community leaders are among those affected. Caring for the mental health needs of communities and promoting resilience and recovery requires prompt interventions by educating people on common responses to trauma and the ways this may look different in children, providing guidance on actions to foster individual and family well-being, and ensuring access to timely resources and care when distress persists or other symptoms emerge.
