LAS VEGAS - The volunteer psychologists and counselors have been pouring

into this grieving city, so fast that a state official says the supply far

exceeds the demand for crisis counseling.

 

But a worrisome question looms: What happens when the volunteers go home?

 

Nevada's mental health system was already overstretched before the carnage

on Sunday night at a country music festival here. Now, thousands of victims,

survivors, and their loved ones - as well as first responders and local

workers who witnessed the horror - are expected to need mental health

services in the coming weeks and months.
