In the wake of a pair of suspected suicides, the doors remain open for A&M Consolidated students needing to talk.
The College Station Independent School District says it will continue to provide in-school counseling for those who want the help. Counselors are also identifying students who may be showing signs of troubled behavior and monitoring them more closely. On Wednesday, a consultant will visit with all school counselors about dealing with these types of crisis.
If you or someone you know is contemplating suicide, call (800) SUICIDE (800-784-2433).
Statement from KBTX General Manager Mike Wright:
It has long been the policy to not report on suicide out of respect for families. With two unrelated occurrences within a short amount of time, KBTX felt a heavy responsibility to remind parents, friends and relatives of the importance of looking for signs, giving whatever information was available that may serve to prevent such a tragedy. Moving forward, the comment feature attached to the majority of our stories will not be available on stories of this nature out of respect for the families dealing with this issue.
