This past week has been challenging for everyone in our community. The effect of these tragic events will continue to linger and affect people in different ways. It is important to understand that most people will recover from traumatic events on their own in a healthy way. While you shouldn’t push someone to get help, you should know what resources are available if they express an interest in such services.
UCF RESTORES, a program based out of UCF’s Psychology Department, is offering free counseling services for anyone affected by the Pulse shooting, whether that is today, or months down the road. Call 407-823-3910 to get connected with UCF RESTORES or to talk with one of their staff members about other available resources. UCF Restores also offers a tip sheet on the aftermath of trauma. Please read it and share the resource with anyone needing assistance.
