American Psychiatric President Responds to Aftermath of Tragic Shootings

July 10, 2016

The nation is in terrible turmoil following the fatal police shootings in Baton Rouge, La., and St. Paul, Minn., and last week’s deadly attack on police officers in Dallas. I share the intense feelings our patients and our members are experiencing right now. We offer our deepest sympathy and condolences to the victims of violence. Our members, our district branches and other mental health providers are available to assist those in these affected communities and across the country who are dealing with the emotional stress and trauma they face.
