Teenagers in Issaquah and Sammamish will wear special T-shirts to school Sept. 10 as part of National Suicide Prevention Day efforts.
Nick Pringle, a youth pastor at Pine Lake Covenant Church, is spearheading local awareness efforts. He said the last two years have been the hardest of his eight-year ministry career, with many area teens committing suicide.
Five teens in Issaquah, Sammamish and Snoqualmie took their own lives during the past school year. And 2013 was considered the most violent year for teen suicides in King County in the past five years, with the number rising from three to 11.
