Aurora Theater Shooting

7/20 Committee offers mental health resources for those traumatized by James Holmes hearing

A preliminary hearing for James Holmes, the accused Aurora theater shooter, concluded today, and numerous victims and members of the public were on site to watch. A lot of reporters were there, too, taking notes on the horrific details of the July 20 shooting -- and given the chilling testimony, survivors can be re-traumatized. That's why one Aurora group is making efforts to promote local mental health services.
