Disaster & Mass Casualty Resources

While many are stunned by the Las Vegas tragedy, many news outlets, including the Washington Post, have reported on the gambling behaviors of the perpetrator. It is important to share with your communities that the vast majority of those struggling with gambling issues do not take violent action against others, and that help is available to all Ohioans.

The National Center offers resources for both general (e.g., survivors, families of those affected, general public) and professional (e.g., first responders, clergy members, mental health professionals) audiences. The list below reviews those materials most relevant following the tragedy in Las Vegas.
