    Yet no one will listen to those who do reach out for help. Apparently mental illness isnt real.. because you cant see it

    My thing about this is even if a person admits they are sad they are suicidal what can a person do physically to stop them
    U cant watch them 24 hours a day, you can call police, 911 them bur what usually happens with that..they can be on meds, they can be placed in a mental institution and I think they know that
    But most of all a person will do what they want to do no matter what
    Maybe being there for them more might help
    But I think when a person reaches that point theres no return
    I think that is the more reason why Suicide is on the rise
    People will treat them as crazy & no one wants to be in white suit tied up
    What it needs to be is instead of throwing meds on the depressed and throwing them in a mental crazy place is offer free therapy, free things to do with families maybe a trip, or a spa or something to get their minds off of sadness
    It wont erase their pain but maybe time will heal them
    No one wants to be labeled as crazy and no one wants to be living in a crazy house
    But at the end of the day a person will do what they want to do

    The fund funds what exactly...and if her parents new she was struggling and sad why would she have to ask for help? Why did they not help her😡🤔 get your kids help when you know they need it, your there to guide them when they go through difficulties. Also this program opens up next month a little too late for this girl I’d say. Cant stop the school shootings and can’t get expedited help for the youth when they go through war!
    RIP beautiful girl so sorry you carried such heaviness at such a young age😭🙏🏽

      @Beonkia M I watched all the mainsteam videos I found at the time...they all said the same thing..."apparent"...nothing else about it...they just go into a rant about how to prevent suicide or whatever. Our media is awful. See what happens, I guess.

      Jellotuna She shot herself in the head. On some videos of her they’ll say. You just have to look. Or maybe it was said about the other student who did it? I don’t remember but they should be doing an autopsy

    This shows what a very poor job Congress is doing with changing gun laws. It’s almost been 7 tears since the Sandy Hook school shooting. After all of these shootings, there should have been a massive change to preventing this from happening. Congress, the notes on what New Zealand just did in less than with the change of their gun laws after their shooting s couple of weeks ago. #change

    And now there’s people like her who didn’t get help either and took it out on herself.

    My Condolences to the families, may they rest in peace..I'm so sorry for your loss. Three suicides so close together within days apart. Maybe the school should consider closing its doors and turning that location into a peaceful memorial like a park. I can't imagine the students being able to focus on their education with such devastating memories. God Bless Them All.

    Don't blame FOX news for her death. Survivors guilt is real and it is very difficult to handle. I worry that these students are not getting the support they need to get over the horrific deaths of their friends and fellow students. At 19 the trauma can be overwhelming. RIP Sidney you light will be missed in the world.

This girl took her like just like the shooter took the ones of others at the end they dont care about the harm done to others because of their actions.....ptsd is to get away with what you do. There is so many children that go thru tougher things and keep their cool thru life....and dont go blaming everybody for what happen to them...they dont forget they live to the fullest instead...Respect each other and live happy.
