A new free mental health clinic is looking for licensed mental health professionals to help the Uvalde community in the wake of the Texas town’s tragedy.

Beginning on Tuesday, May 31, virtual interviews will be conducted to find these health care professionals.

The free mental health clinic is seeking out mental health clinicians across the Lone Star State who can commit to eight to 12 weeks. Mental health clinicians will help the community deal with the aftermath of the May 24 mass shooting of Robb Elementary School where 19 students and two teachers were killed by a gunman.

Bob Stead, MS, LPC, a provider and Give an Hour ambassador, is spearheading the effort to establish the free mental health clinic.

There are immediate needs that must be addressed in the Uvalde community, but the long-term effects have yet to be determined and may not be as obvious, a news release points out. Regardless of the timeline, Stead and other professionals are committed to helping out the Uvalde community “for the long haul.”

Licensed health care professionals who want to get involved can register here.

Give an Hour created the Route 91 Heals program, for the victims of the 2017 Route 91 Harvest Festival mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada. The program offers peers support, resources, and group sessions led by a therapist.. The program helps build resilience through online events, creative workshops and community gatherings.
