In Wake of Santa Fe
With heavy hearts we send our
condolences and prayers to the victims of the Sante Fe high school shooting and
their families. The horror of such a violent assault in a school so soon since
the last and so much closer to home is disturbing and traumatizing. This act of
egregious violence is a reminder of the need for everyone to have access to
mental health services.
JFS humbly offers our services to those affected by this tragedy. The
children’s program of JFS in particular avails itself to students in our
community that may be experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and
secondary trauma as a result of this school shooting. Adolescents, through
social media networks, are often is exposed to more graphic content of
massacres like this and because of their age may identify with the victims more
than adults. JFS encourages parents to offer extra emotional support to their
children and teens in the aftermath of this tragedy and to reach out for
professional help available at JFS.
Parents, teens, and kids may call the
Crisis Hotline by dialing 832-416-1177, or Teen talk: 832-416-1199(call), or
text the word ‘Start’ to 741-741 to be immediately connected with a crisis
worker. You may also download an Android App for resources, search for: CIH
