The events this past weekend were horrifying and traumatic. We send our condolences to the families who lost loved ones.

While the media, as is so often the case, were quick to suggest that the alleged shooter had a mental illness, it now appears that there were other motives. We would like to remind the public that those who deal with mental health conditions are far more likely to be the victims of violence then the perpetrators.

To anyone who needs support, our HelpLine is available at 1-800-451-9682 – open Mon-Fri from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. ET.
