  • Youth Mental Health Experts Advise Wrapping Kids With Shared Supports

    May is Mental Health Month, with May 7 designated National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day. But for two members of Newtown’s Resiliency and Recovery Team (RRT), every day since their arrival brings them greater awareness of local youths’ mental health concerns post 12/14.

  • Recovery And Resiliency Team Looking To Partner, Share Information

    The website being maintained by the six-member Recovery and Resiliency Team (RRT) is not only designed to be a clearinghouse of information for the local trauma response agency, but a resource for any other agency, nonprofit and grassroots organization maintaining or holding strategic events designed to support Newtown’s continued healing post 12/14.

  • Assistance Is In Place When Help Is Needed At SHS

    “We are the central place for support and resources for all community members, whether 12/14-related or not,” said Melissa Glaser. Ms Glaser is the community outreach liaison for the Newtown Recovery and Resiliency Team, funded through December 2015 by a Department of Justice grant.
