When a mass shooting occurs, media coverage often jumps to questions of mental health.  In reality, only 3-5% of all violent acts are committed by people with serious mental illness and a majority (65%) of gun related deaths are suicides. This webinar in the “Standing Our Holy Ground” series explores the relationship between mental health and gun violence and debunk the myths/misperceptions surrounding it.

Featuring: Jennifer Bronson Statistician/Social Science Analyst, Bureau of Justice Statistics; Beth McGinty, Professor, Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg School of Public Health.
