Response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School Tragedy

The Belin-Blank Center joins the countless professionals in schools and the mental health community in expressing our deep sorrow for the families of the students and staff of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. This loss of human life is devastating, confusing, and terrifying for us, as well as for our children and students. Several national organizations have provided resources to help parents, teachers, and other professionals address the questions and concerns of children.

We hope that you find these resources helpful. If you have concerns about a child’s response to these events, please contact an appropriate mental health professional, either through the child’s school or in the community, for support and guidance.
