In Los Angeles, a program is trying to stop school violence by addressing teens' mental health. There's no predicting violent outbursts, the team says, and it's tough to watch out for L.A.'s nearly 700,000 students - but they feel like they've reached kids who probably wouldn't have gotten help, otherwise.
An autistic kid goes to my school, and most students try to stay away from him. I speak to him when I can because if he is ignored, he might become depressed, and I doubt that would end well.
That is so sad!!! :( I never knew children could be that upset about their life. God bless them and keep them from harming themselves or others.
