Community Care Support Teams Available to Assist as We Remember October 1

September 27, 2016: This weekend marks one year since the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College. Over the last year, community leaders have been working closely with each other and with communities across the country that are also recovering from tragedy. We have learned there are many different ways to observe and remember but what is most important is that you choose what is best for you and your family. As we approach the one-year mark of this tragic day, please be sure to take care of yourself and check-in with those you care about.

Community Care Support Team members will be offering support throughout the weekend at the scheduled memorial events. These volunteers will consist of State Emergency Registry of Volunteers in Oregon (SERV-OR) behavioral health clinicians, local clergy, local behavioral health clinicians, American Red Cross and tribal behavioral health clinicians. They will all be wearing distinctive orange SERV-OR vests and will have the training to offer help if you ask them. They also will be on-site at the following Roseburg locations for drop-in conversations:
