Last month (August, 2019) a 15-year-old committed suicide near his family home in Williamsville.
His family was shocked and confused since there were no signs to suggest he was suicidal. His father said he “seemed to be happy”, was doing well at school and involved in extra-curricular activities.
In February, a 16-year-old took her life reportedly after her mother confiscated her cell phone. In July, a Petrotrin worker committed suicide after becoming depressed from losing his job. These are a few cases that made the news. Many do not.
