Mission San Jose Provides Additional Counseling Following Student’s Suicide

The suicide occurred off-campus on Monday, according to media reports.


The Fremont Unified School District is providing extra counselors at Mission San Jose High School after a student committed suicide off-campus earlier this week, according to media reports.

The Fremont Argus reports that the female student, a 17-year-old junior, committed suicide on Monday, but additional details were not disclosed.

Since the tragedy, five extra counselors, in addition to the regular three counselors at the school, have been made available to provide support to students and staff who may be distraught, according to the Argus.

The additional counselors will be available for “as long as the students and staff need them,” FUSD Superintendent James Morris told the Argus.

Additional assistance is also available through Fremont’s Youth and Family Services Counseling program by calling 510-574-2100.

The loss of one person touches so many. while it might seem at times as if there is no reason for continuing on. The gap left where you once stood is hard to fill and often never can be filled enough. So if you're reading this and you have doubts as to your worth, trust me. Your single contribution to even a single persons life who you have not yet met will more then compensate for trudging through the hard times of today. You very well could be the reason someone else finds their strength to get up the next day. Every day can be new and fresh, but you have to find the courage to seek it. Hearts go out to the family & friends & all who have been touched by this.
