On Tuesday, a mourner cries at the memorial to those killed in the Sunday massacre in Vokesha. The woman, who did not give her name, said that her daughter participated in the parade and witnessed the tragedy.



MILWAUKI – As people in Waukesh and elsewhere continue to cope with injuries after six deaths and more than 60 injuries after a man drove an SUV during a holiday parade, mental health experts are suggesting new ways to get help.

On Monday, Wisconsin Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee opened a new mental and behavioral health care line (414-266-6500) for people and families in need of support. The hospital said the hotline had received dozens of calls as of Tuesday afternoon.

Local organizations have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for victims, and mental health professionals are sharing new and existing resources to help people cope with grief, Wisconsin Public Radio reports.

Hayley Miller is a licensed social worker and behavioral health counselor in Children’s Wisconsin working in a crisis situation. She said they received calls to talk to the children about what had happened. Adults wonder about their feelings, she said.

“A lot of people came to us asking if the emotions they were experiencing were normal, whether it was a complete blackout and unwillingness to get out of bed, or feeling numb about it,” Miller said. “And we’re also working to help people get the resources they need.”
