Mass Shootings Impacting US Psyche, Mental Health Experts Say

HealthDay (12/4, Thompson) reports that “mass shootings and the accompanying carnage” that happen all too often in the US now have some “mental health experts” warning of possible “major consequences for the nation’s psyche.” But, people “struggling to cope with these violent events would do well to remember that it’s still very unlikely that you or yours will become directly involved in a shooting, said” Renee Binder, MD, president of the American Psychiatric Association. Dr. Binder suggested that people “do a reality check and consider that the chances of this happening to someone you love is still very rare.”
