Statewide Trauma/Grief Support


June 7th, 2022

These past few weeks, there have been a number of traumatic events, leaving us all to deal with emotions, grief, and pain. We wanted to inform everyone about a few additional supports available to help people deal with grief and emotional trauma resulting from the Buffalo tragedy and other recent traumatic events. Below are a few culturally relevant resources to help people navigate feelings and identify healthy ways to cope:


  • MHEP-RISE Center (Mental Health Empowerment Project) is a direct resource for virtual groups as well as 24 hour peer support (1-800-643-7462).




Additional trauma/crisis/grief resources for New Yorkers can be accessed here:
