Date:12/7/2007

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mental Health America expresses its deepest sympathies to the victims, family and friends of the Omaha, Nebraska mall shootings. As details surrounding the shootings continue to unfold, Mental Health America recognizes that this tragedy affects people across the country -- especially during the holiday season when Americans more often frequent malls and other community centers. Mental Health America developed tips to help individuals ease anxieties they may feel in the wake of this tragedy. Individuals looking for information and support can visit http://www.mentalhealthamerica.net or call Mental Health America at (800) 969-6642.

-- Know that tragedies, like mall shootings, are rare.

-- Develop a personal safety plan to ensure your wellbeing in a similar situation.

-- Limit television viewing. Watching or reading news about the event over and over again will increase your stress.

-- Talk about it. By communicating with others about the event, you can relieve stress and realize that others share your feelings.

-- If you feel depressed, anxious or angry, talk to friends, family, ministers or others around you. Likely, other people are experiencing similar feelings.

-- Ask for help when you need it. If your feelings of anxiety and worry do not subside or become so intense that they interfere with your daily life, don't try to cope alone. Talk with a mental health professional, spiritual adviser or other person who can help. Seeking help is not a sign of weakness.
