Just last week we told you about a young man who tried to take his own life. (12 Year Old Speaks About Suicide Attempt and Impact of School Bullying)
I say young man, but he's only 12 years old. Gavin Gray just returned to school after spending time at a mental health facility following a suicide attempt.

His mother reached out to me for help getting something done at his school about a bullying problem that pushed Gavin Gray to the point of hurting himself. Just a couple of days after I sat down with Jenna and Gavin, the Armstrong School District took action.
I spoke to her about the changes on KDKA Radio:
- StopBullying.gov : This site is run by the U.S. government to help connect you to the right groups and agencies, everything from national, state, and local resources.
- National Suicide Prevention Hotline 1-800-273-8255
- If someone is in immediate danger, pick up the phone and call 9-1-1.
