'Reach' helps students cope

-A A +A

Education > App designed for teens who are struggling with their lives

By Tris DeRoma

For many high school students, high school is a fun and exciting time. Often, that time is marked with achievement, self-discovery and coming into one’s own.
Unfortunately students also discover that those good things sometimes don’t happen without some rejection, failure and disappointments along the way.
And some of those students become so overwhelmed by that they take their own lives.
In the past three years, Los Alamos High School and the community at large has lost at least three students to suicide and those same years are marked with many unsuccessful attempts, as well.
In response, there’s now a program called “Reach Toward Not Away.”
Reach Toward Not Away was started last year by then Los Alamos High School senior Sophan Kellogg.
Formed in the wake of the suicides by two Los Alamos seniors, the aim of RTNA was to extend an ever-present lifeline to students needing help getting through a difficult situation. The outreach program accomplished this through specialized apps, pledge drives, phone numbers, and other means of outreach and support.
