Firearm Violence and Mental Health

You cannot turn the TV on or go on the internet without being overwhelmed but the terrible violence that has been occurring. It is terrifying and very sad to see out flag at a constant half mast. It can also be hard to address these hot topics, so I decided that a safe way to approach the topics is to stick to the facts and the studies.

Synchronously I was sent this recent wonderful scientific presentation on the UCTV channel that will give you a lot of information about past and present shootings and how much mental illness is to blame as well as some updates about current laws.

Some of the findings may surprise you! Please feel free to pass this along.
