State of Nevada licensed psychologist Stephanie Woodard discusses Post-traumatic Stress Disorder and the difficulties people may experience after events such as the 1 October shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival site. Anyone affected by the incident should contact the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center to be connected with available services and resources. It is on the web at VegasStrongRC.org and may be reached at (702) 455-2433 (AIDE) or toll-free at (833) 299-2433 or by email at vegasstrongresiliencycenter@clarkcountynv.gov. Its office is located at 1524 Pinto Lane, 89106, in Las Vegas and services are free and confidential. Also, applications for assistance from the Nevada State Crime Victim Compensation Program must be submitted by Oct. 1, 2018. Anyone who was present at the festival during the shooting, regardless of their home state or country of origin, may be eligible for assistance through the Nevada Victims of Crime Program. Funds from the program may help reimburse victims of the shooting for out-of-pocket expenses resulting from the crime such as medical bills, funeral expenses and mental health counseling not covered by insurance. Anyone eligible to apply for the program is encouraged to submit an application by Oct. 1, 2018. This will ensure that even if one has no expenses at this time, one may be eligible for assistance through the program if you incur expenses after the application deadline.
