Statement From California Association Of Marriage And Family Therapists

SAN DIEGO , Dec. 14, 2012  /PRNewswire/ --  We are deeply saddened by today's school shooting tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims their families, and the entire Sandy Hook Elementary School community.

An incident like this is a painful reminder that no one is immune from challenging problems that, if left untreated, can lead to mental health issues or mental illness. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, one in four adults—approximately 57.7 million Americans—experiences a mental health disorder in a given year and fewer than one-third of adults with a diagnosable mental disorder receive mental health services in a given year. [1]

The California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists urges people to seek help immediately if they or someone they know is struggling with mental health issues. Help is available. CounselingCalifornia.com offers a free resource where Californians can find a therapist in their area or learn more about dealing with a variety of issues including hopelessness and grief and anger management, among many other serious topics.

For those having difficulty coping with sadness, grief and loss due to this unspeakable tragedy or struggling with how to talk to your children about it, you may want to speak with a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.
