    Good evening, Northwest Families, this is Jimmy D’Andrea, principal of Northwest High School, with your Sunday evening message.  Suicide Prevention & Mental Health ResourcesAs you may have seen in the media, two MCPS high school students have taken their own lives since Thanksgiving.  In response, our Student Government President and Vice-President, our Resource Counselor, and I appeared in a special JAG-TV announcement for the entire school last Tuesday (https://youtu.be/DOW7sg70g2U).  All students also received a flyer with information about resources and supports available if they or someone they know is thinking about harming themselves (http://www.btheone.org).  I encourage all parents to continue this conversation with their children, and MCPS has compiled a list of suicide prevention and mental health resources for families to assist in these conversations.  The list is at the end of this message.
