Resources for Coping with Trauma

Posted by on October 29th, 2018 Posted in: Consumer Health, Disaster / Emergency Preparedness, Health Professionals, In the Region, K-12, Outreach, Public Health

As many of you may know, NNLM MAR’s offices are located at the University of Pittsburgh, just a few miles from the Tree of Life Synagogue where 11 people lost their lives on Saturday morning. While all NNLM MAR staff are physically safe, we grieve with our friends, neighbors and colleagues.

This morning, we received these resource suggestions from our colleagues at the Disaster Information Management Resource Center (DIMRC), National Library of Medicine, and, in turn, we would like to share them with the local community, and the rest of our Network.

The National Child Traumatic Stress Network has several resources that apply to mass shootings, and to this shooting specifically:

The National Disaster Interfaiths Network (NDIN) has many resources that might apply, including:

National Library of Medicine Resources:

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) Disaster Distress Hotline provides 24/7, 365-day-a-year crisis counseling and support to people experiencing emotional distress related to natural or human-caused disasters.

  • Phone: 1-800-985-5990
  • Text: “TalkWithUs” to 66746

We cannot erase the trauma that we have experienced, but we can take active steps to engage our colleagues, friends, and the public in beginning to overcome this loss.
