With the tragic shootings today in Connecticut, children will be understandably troubled if they hear of this news. Please talk to them and let them know that everyone in our communities are working together to make sure that children and their families and pets are safe.

To help adults talk with children about such tragedies, we offer guidance on our website, or dial 2-1-1 for help: http://mentalhealth.vermont.gov/node/1289
