The district recently held a one-day suicide prevention and depression awareness program for seventh- and eighth-graders at Lundahl, Bernotas and Hannah Beardsley middle schools. … It’s not the first year the district has offered mental health-related programming. A three-day depression awareness program called Erika’s Lighthouse was presented to sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders last year. It was introduced to only sixth-graders this year, while the new SOS package was designated for seventh- and eighth-grade students.
