Suicide of Sixth Grader from Mount View Middle School Prompts Community Forum 

The suicide of a sixth grade girl from Mount View Middle School last week is prompting the school district to hold a community forum. RSU 3 is working with the National Alliance on Mental Illness to put on the event. It’s Thursday, April 11th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The forum takes place at Mount View High School’s performing arts center in Thorndike. Superintendent Heather Perry says the evening will focus on suicide prevention as well as resources in the area to help families and community members deal with the difficult issue.
