My KRON 4: Students raise awareness about teen suicide

PALO ALTO (KRON) — A sharp rise in suicides at Palo Alto high schools has one community taking action.

KRON4’s Alecia Reid explains how a group of students is coming together to raise awareness about teen suicide.

Christian and Andrew are two students who have made a documentary about the teen suicides at Palo Alto High and Gunn High School. The students said this documentary is in response to all the suicides.

In addition to shedding light about these suicides, the students believe the documentary takes the stigma away from suicides and opens the door for people to talk about suicides. The documentary makers said they want people to talk about the suicides, so it won’t just be something that people only talk about behind closed doors.
