According to the Washington State Department of Health, between two and three youths ages 15-24 commit suicide every week in Washington state.
“The last three years have been some of the hardest years of my ministry when we saw several young people take their lives,” Nick Pringle, pastor of student ministries at Pine Lake Covenant Church for nearly 10 years, says in a Facebook video. “Each year in America, there are over 1 million attempts of suicide, and that’s too many.”
For the second year, teens from Issaquah and Sammamish will join the national movement for National Suicide Prevention Day on Sept. 10 and wear “You Matter” T-shirts to school that day.

Previously, classroom doors in the district had to be locked from the outside, said Kathryn Reith, district director of communications.
“That was not such a great thing if you were in a lock-down situation,” Reith added.
