On Monday, August 3, the one year anniversary of the Walmart massacre, Emergence Health Network is hosting “A Day of Hope and Healing” Facebook Live event.
Because of the events of August 3rd and the aftermath, Emergence Health Network and its mental health professionals are reaching out to borderland residents to help them understand trauma and healing.
“The events on August 3rd changed our community forever and as we mark the one-year anniversary of that unfortunate time we want to make sure our community is prepared for the emotions that often come with such a day,” said Kristi Daugherty, Emergence Health Network Chief Executive Officer.
“It’s been a year since that senseless violence shocked our city, but the healing process for such a traumatic event takes time.”
The unique event will feature several sessions – in English and Spanish – throughout the day.
“It’s a day-long series of meaningful discussions hosted by our mental health professionals. The goal is to help our residents continue to heal by learning more about the challenging feelings they might experience and learn useful tools to cope with those emotions on this anniversary,” added Daugherty.
