The grief and mourning continue for the 17 students and staff killed on the afternoon of Feb. 14 during a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. But something else is happening among the anguish of the interrupted lives of the victims and survivors. Out of the agony, activism has emerged and students from across South Florida are speaking out together asking for stricter gun controls. Here's a list of grief counseling resources available for the community.

Stoneman Douglas Commission To Discuss 'School Hardening,' Education And Health Privacy Laws

Broward Sheriff's Office Major Nichole Anderson testified before the Commission in June.

The state commission investigating the Florida school massacre will discuss improving campus safety and hear about education and health privacy laws.

The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission begins its monthly two-day meeting Wednesday. The 14 members will hear from experts on "school hardening" and state and federal privacy laws.

On Thursday, the commission will discuss school shootings nationally and the Florida Department of Children and Families' response to calls regarding suspect Nikolas Cruz.

They will also consider how many school police officers should be assigned to larger campuses and their duties. They will then have a closed session on Cruz's educational, medical and mental health history.

The commission must file a report by Jan. 1.

Cruz is charged with killing 17 at the school Feb. 14.
