YAKIMA, Wash.-- Comprehensive Mental Health in Yakima is celebrating National Crime Victims Week.
Tuesday, speakers from Comprehensive and a detective with the Yakima Police Department shared information and resources available to people who have been victims of crime.
Victim advocates were also on hand. They work one-on-one with those affected, helping them through the legal and healing process.
"We could be the mediator. So if they need to get a hold of a detective, they need to get a hold of a prosecutor, we can get a hold of them for them and then relay that information back and forth to the victim," said Rosy Torrico, a crime victim advocate.
Torrico says victims have a lot of resources available to them but many don't know how to take advantage of them.
Anyone interested in getting help can contact Comprehensive Mental Health.
