Online Suicide

It is important that we use the suicide of young Abraham Briggs online as a teachable moment. Would students know what to do if they saw this happening? Would they succumb to the "Bystander Effect" where no one does anything because they are a part of the crowd watching? If they wanted to do something would they where to go or who to call?

The best place to go or call is the The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Plus they have profiles on MySpace and Facebook.
