Gun Violence: A Mental Health Crisis for Youth

Setup

Over the past 20 years, almost 200,000 children under age 18 have been shot. Nearly as many attend schools where a shooting has taken place. Mass casualty events receive much of the attention — 60 percent of high school students say they are concerned that a shooting will occur in their school or community — but these actually represent just a fraction of the damage caused by gun violence. Along with physical injuries, the emotional impact of such trauma can be lifelong. This session opens with a video, followed by a conversation with children who have had personal experiences with gun violence.
