We are deeply saddened to learn that earlier this week, an 18-year-old senior at Corona del Sol High School in Tempe, Arizona took his own life at school. Our hearts go out to the entire school community as they mourn the loss of their classmate, student, son and friend.
Through this tragedy, we're reminded of the importance of learning to recognize and safely report signs that a person is at risk of hurting themselves, or others. It has been reported that the student had posted several tweets including "Life has fallen apart in front of my eyes and it's all my fault” and simply, "help”.
We stand in solidarity with the Corona del Sol community, and we commit ourselves to prevention. To download the #SaySomething guide to educate youth about recognizing and safely reporting warning signs, please visit http://bit.ly/1JHpd7I.
