June Update

The impact of COVID-19-related gun violence is expected to be felt long after the pandemic ends, causing lasting mental and physical anguish. Experts believe there will be significant lasting effects stemming from the relationship between the pandemic and gun violence. Some equate these expected effects to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence explores some of the societal issues that may see an increase in PTSD or suicide by gun months after COVID-19 is over.
