The shock of last week's shootings could be especially hard to handle, for Aurora's many Latino immigrants and refugees from countries in Africa and Southeast Asia. Not speaking English, many people have had a hard time even finding out what happened. Those who want more information, or help dealing with fear, stress and uncertainty can find language and cultural barriers in the way. The Aurora Mental Health Center is hosting a meeting for Spanish speakers July 24th, and another for refugees Wednesday August 1st. The center's Dr. Mara Kailin told CPR's Mike Lamp the meetings, in mulitple languages, reach immigrants and refugees in a way they can understand. [Photo: M. Verlee / CPR]
