CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The city of Charlottesville has an entire webpage dedicated to updates, tips, and resources pertaining to the anniversary of August 11 and 12. The site offers tips on managing any stress or trauma from last year's events.
Some recommendations from the Community Mental Health and Wellness Coalition include seeking emotional safety, staying connected, and supporting children.
“This brings up a lot of different emotions, hard emotions and feelings for people that have experienced trauma because of what happened on August 12 and so we want to make sure people know that they're not alone and they can come and seek support,” said therapist Varinia Anderson.
The Charlottesville Women's Initiative will be providing a free walk-in clinic at the Jefferson School on August 11 for anyone looking to speak with someone about their emotions or trauma.
