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 Resource Guide.
