Riverside Offers Mental Help to Those Affected by Las Vegas Shooting

(CNS) Riverside County residents affected by the deadly shooting in Las Vegas can meet with county mental health specialists at several events in the county.

The free events in Riverside, Lake Elsinore and Indio will offer  support to anyone who attended the Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival or  knew a victim of the shooting.

The events will run from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., with clinical therapists conducting the meetings and providing ``special intervention and resources to those impacted by the violence."

County health officials say only those who attended the concert or knew someone who was injured or killed in the shooting will be allowed in.

Director of RUHS  Behavioral Health, Steve Steinberg says these events will be a huge help to those suffering.

``These debriefings provide a special opportunity to share  experiences, learn coping skills and access resources for additional support that might be needed down the road."

The events will be held at three clinics run by the Riverside County  Department of Mental Health:

Western Riverside County Region, Rustin Conference Center, 2085  Rustin Ave., Riverside;

Mid Riverside County Region, Lake Elsinore Behavioral Health, 31764  Casino Drive, Ste. 300, Lake Elsinore;
