When tragic current events strike our members or those of our patients, we want to be able to provide resources and support. Below are various types of resources, focused on different demographic groups and types of traumatic events. If you would like to add a category or a resource, please email us at with the relevant information and we will post it here. Please remember to scroll to the end because the list will grow over time.

We can connect with and support each other in additional ways. For instance, members can post an email on our platform, soliciting information or support. In addition, we are happy to provide a zoom room to facilitate live virtual meetings among members. If you are interested, please email us at to start that process. Please have a specific date and time for the zoom call.

Please note that WMHC does not issue “statements” related to current events; we don’t believe that it is our role to decide which events affecting us or our patients are traumatic or important enough to merit a statement and which are not.
