According to the Facebook group,

We started this group in November 2017, in response to the mass shootings that were gripping the nation. We have since evolved to focus on the impact of covering trauma on journalists and how to best cover traumatic events, whether it's a mass casualty event, a hurricane or the pandemic. Here, you can give advice on how you coped from the secondhand grief, ask how to approach a source on a sensitive topic, and share tips on follow-up stories in the months and years ahead. This is a place for journalists to ask for and give emotional and professional support in covering a trauma.

According to the Facebook group,

A safe space for journalists to discuss all aspects of trauma: exposure to trauma in the field, vicarious trauma, how to engage sources that have experienced trauma, and news management's duty of care to protect their reporters and the public.

According to the Facebook group,

This is a forum to discuss ways to deal with anxiety, depression and other mental health issues that arise while navigating a life in television. The group is closed and not open to the public. Only approved members will be able to see what you write in here. Personal stories are always welcome. Please feel free to share tips and posts from reputable sites that discuss mental illness and how we can deal with its various causes, but keep in mind this is a supportive space.
