Looking for resources (powerpoint, youtube, short documentaries. etc.) for presenting to children and teens about the effects of the trauma of mass shootings. Obviously, what is appropriate for teens 13-17 would unlikely be appropriate for younger children. Thank you.

I've found the NCTSN to be a helpful resource. They have a variety of resources for varying audiences, including children, to talk about mass violence. You could likely pull some information from there for a presentation or conversation with young people.
Here are some additional resources, which are in our Resource Center:
Talking to Children about Gun Violence
- Helpful Resources to Address the Mass Shooting in Uvalde, Texasfrom the Children's Mental Health Network
- Resources For Educators, Families to Discuss Mass Shootings from the San Diego County Office of Education
- Supporting Families: Young Children and Gun Violence from ZERO TO THREE
- Talking to Children About Violence: Tips for Parents and Teachersfrom the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP)
- Talking to Teens When Violence Happens from the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (also in Spanish)
- We Grieve for the Families and Community of Uvalde from the National Research Center of Hispanic Children & Families
