Parkland, Florida School Shooting

The New Hampshire Psychological Association Board of Directors and NHPA community offer our sincerest condolences to the families and communities experiencing loss and trauma as a result of the violence that occurred in Florida this week. When tragedy strikes, location doesn’t matter. We all feel the loss of our neighbor. We would like to take this opportunity to share valuable resources that may be of help during this time.
