Helping a Community Heal in Uvalde
Give an Hour has been supporting the Uvalde community from the very beginning.
Mental health providers set up a clinic at the local library. However, based on our experience with the Route 91 Heals program, Give an Hour anticipated a much longer-term need and is ready to help those on the ground in Uvalde by providing mental health educational tools and other appropriate resources to address trauma and grief associated with this horrific day.
“When tragedies occur, many step up in the initial aftermath,” said Dr. Trina Clayeux, CEO of Give an Hour. “Give an Hour’s experience positions us to be here for what comes next. We’re in it for the long haul.”
Mental Health Information
It’s hard to know where to turn after a trauma, where to start, who to trust, and what steps to take in the healing journey. This toolkit and other informational materials are a basic start.
