Support available for coping with recent violence
Reports of violence seem endless recently, including the devastating mass shootings in Buffalo, Uvalde and Tulsa over the past three weeks. Indiana University recognizes that the emotional impact of these events can be very difficult, and that it’s normal to experience a wide range of feelings in the face of such news.
