GOLETA, Calif. (AP) - The University of California, Santa Barbara, will receive a nearly $570,000 federal grant to help provide continuing mental health services in the aftermath of the May 2014 shooting and stabbing rampage that left six students and their assailant dead in a campus-area neighborhood..

The U.S. Department of Education grant will go toward expanding the university’s mental health staff.

U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan says the department wants to provide support to students, faculty and community members who have been impacted by the crisis as they continue to move forward.

Three students were stabbed to death, three were fatally shot and 13 others wounded in the attack by 22-year-old Elliot Rodger, a community college student who had posted an Internet video outlining his plan to slaughter as many people as possible.
