Optum Supports Individuals Impacted by Uvalde Texas Shootingposted by Amber Brady on June 1, 2022
If you turn on the TV, read the news, or go online, you’ll likely find the news is full of negative stories, including tragic events. Some tragedies involve unthinkable acts of violence, which can be difficult to understand. When violence strikes closer to home — like in your community — it may be even harder to process.
