School Shootings &​ Youth Mental Health

Our hearts go out to the students, staff, and families in Mount Horeb, WI. School shootings have a traumatic effect on the community as a whole. Research on youth survivors of shootings finds that children experience lasting physical and mental trauma.

Our recent fact sheet offers recommendations for policy makers, families, and schools to support the physical and psychological safety needs of our youth. Through this difficult time, please consider how your community can help to prevent school-based violence:
