Support, counseling available for ASU community to talk about Tucson tragedy

January 10, 2011

Anger and sadness are two common emotions felt by many after tragedies such as the shooting in Tucson in which U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was gravely injured and others shot, including six who died.

ASU graduate Gabe Zimmerman was among those who passed away. Members of the ASU community are reminded that counseling services are available at the university’s four campuses to talk about this incident or other issues. In addition, a 24-hour hotline staffed by behavioral health professionals has been established by the Arizona Department of Health Services and Magellan Health Services of Arizona to help citizens process feelings at 1-800-203-2273. Students may call EMPACT’s 24-hour Crisis Line at (480) 921-1006.
