Youth suicide prevention grants open in Park County
On a spring day in 2016, more than 100 people filled the gym at Park High School in Livingston. Over a matter of a few weeks, four of their neighbors were gone as a result of suicide.
The gym became a gathering point to grieve. Days apart, two adults died by suicide. That came two weeks after news spread that two teenagers had killed themselves — a 17-year-old on Valentine’s Day and a 16-year-old a week later.
The town had to begin healing, school leaders told the crowd.
