When a mass shooting occurs in the U.S., much of the conversation examines the immediate: motive, pre-hospital care, and prevention of recurrence. Less emphasis is placed upon following the victims post-discharge, despite a clear need for support in the weeks or months after the event. Below is a selection of articles examining detection and intervention for survivors exhibiting symptoms of post-traumatic stress.
