Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board suicide watch

The Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board wants the province to help after two recent suicides in Sydney middle schools.

Board Chair Darren Googoo told the Cape Breton Post a letter is going to Premier Stephen McNeil and Education Minister Zach Churchill asking them to examine the resources available to students suffering from mental health issues.  Googoo says there are school counsellors now, various clinicians and other organizations that support their teams in the school system; but the question is, it enough.

A student at Sherwood Park Education Centre recently committed suicide, the second one in about six months.
