OMH would like thank to those who took part in yesterday’s statewide community webinar, “Addressing Community Grief and Trauma Caused by Racism and Violence.”The presentation was designed to help community leaders – such as clergy, education officials, local government, public safety leads, and behavioral health providers – with understanding how to assist individuals, families, and youth coping with the grief and trauma caused by the recent horrific events in Buffalo and Texas. The presentation provided general information and helping others cope with grief and trauma. Specific information focused on children and youth.
