Media Release from the DOE

Our students are getting healthier, but signs of depression and thoughts of suicide are rising.  Below is a link to a media release with information from a Maine student survey.  At BJHS Mrs. Nein and I have been in health classes in December and January speaking with students about suicide prevention. Friends are often the first to hear that someone they know is thinking about taking their life.  We stress the importance of seeking an adult they trust to find help and support.
