Where to find counseling resources to cope with grief, mental health struggles

SAN ANTONIO – Listening to the news of tragedies can be hard on anyone, from those directly connected to viewers who are keeping up with the story. The Department of Justice’s report on the Robb Elementary shooting in Uvalde is difficult to process for many.

“Today was really painful just listening again to the newscast. Any parent just listening to it would be very difficult because you identify so much with these children,” said Marian Sokol, CEO of the Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas.

For those dealing with anxiety, depression, or stress, it’s important to communicate those feelings and emotions.

Sokol said tragedies, like the one in Uvalde, can often leave people feeling powerless. She recommends that instead of focusing on what you can’t do, you try giving back to your community or helping those you can.

Sokol advises those struggling with mental trauma to take advantage of the resources available.
