Basic Black: PTSD and The Lingering Impact of Violence

February 14, 2014


Conversations about gun violence usually center around criminal justice strategies and gun control, but often lost in the debate is the connection to public health.  Last week, Pro Publica, the non-profit investigative journalism news organization published a piece by Lois Beckett, entitled, The PTSD Crisis That's Being Ignored: Americans Wounded in Their Own Neighborhoods.  As the spike in shootings  makes headlines in Boston, our Basic Black conversation focuses on the public health impact to communities in the wake of gun violence.
