Support Group for Survivors of Westroads Mall Shootings

Omaha, Neb. – Dec. 31, 2007 – Region 6 Behavioral Healthcare will facilitate a support group for any interested parties that are experiencing emotions or grief due to the Westroads Mall Shootings. The support group will begin January 8, 2008. The support group will run for 8 consecutive weeks from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Lutheran Church of the Master, 114th & West Center Road. The group will include an educational component on the grief process, as well as open sharing and healing strategies for members. The support group will be facilitated by licensed mental health professionals. They will be available to help individuals that experience a strong emotional response during the group. The professionals will also provide some of the educational components, but will allow the members to develop their own agenda for helping each other. There is no cost and the support group is open to the public.
