    Trouble Unseen: What Parents and Educators Need to Know About
    the Mental Health of Students in Highly Competitive High Schools

    Monday, August 26 / 7:00-8:30PM / New Albany High School

    The suicide rate in America's most competitive high schools is between four and five times the national average. This event will be a panel discussion featuring written and spoken testimony of students who have lost friends to suicide, and in some cases sacrificed their own personal well-being for the sake of high achievement. We will be coming together as parents, community members, and educators to discuss what we can do to get ahead of this problem.
