Guest: Nancy Young
Nancy Young, long time Red Cross mental health professional volunteer, was deployed to Newtown, Connecticut two weeks after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Her assignment: meet with the families whose children died in the tragic shooting on December 14, 2012 and with family members of the adults that were also killed that day. She was to assess the level of support they were receiving and what support they would need as they moved forward with their lives.
One of a select few mental health professionals to be asked to go to Newtown, Nancy shares compelling stories from the families devastated by this unthinkable tragedy.
