Our city needs OUR help. The public health crisis of gun violence and mental health are epidemics that are plaguing our city and its youth. Statistics shows us that 78 percent of Louisville homicide victims are male, 59 percent are African American, and 50 percent are under the age of 25.
Community violence exposure (CVE) and mental health symptoms such as aggression, anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder can have a negative effect on our youth.
We invite everyone in this community to be at this forum. It takes a village to collaboratively discuss the next steps to decrease violence and the mental health effects that are in our community. The success of this conference is dependent upon the community at large. Can we count on you to be a part of this dialogue
