Rebecca Thaler, of APA’s Office of Quality Improvement and Psychiatric Services, received a message from a psychiatrist in Moldova, a tiny country between Romania and Ukraine, expressing how "shocked and saddened" he was by the terrorist attacks. Anatol Nacu, M.D., chief of the psychiatry department in Chisinau, Moldova, said that although "this tragedy occurred far from me, I take it as a personal matter, and [offer] total moral support to you, your relatives, friends, and the whole country, which was so friendly during my recent visit. . . . I hope whoever committed these murders will be punished."
