After student's suicide, crisis counselors available today at Elyria High


ELYRIA — Brenden “Bren” Rich-Beckett was a Pioneer.

Elyria Schools wants to make sure that other Pioneers are doing OK.

Elyria High School will have crisis counselors at the high school 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. today in light of Bren’s suicide, which Bren’s parents discussed in a story about suicide prevention Sunday in The Chronicle-Telegram. While the death took place nearly two weeks ago, the school wants to provide resources to students in need as the details are now public and his funeral was Monday.

Students can go to the school any time during those hours to speak with a crisis counselor.

In addition, summer guidance counselors are in the office every Monday through Thursday.
