In a segment on the NBC Nightly News, NBC News correspondent Mark Potter reported, “To prevent more violence in classrooms, teachers, counselors and other workers in the Miami-Dade County [FL] schools are now being trained to spot the warning signs of student mental illness.” Those warning signs “include talk of suicide, high risk or odd behavior, withdrawal, increased anger, bizarre thoughts and persistent sadness.” Potter added, “The program is paid for by the American Psychiatric Foundation and…is currently used in 21 states,” as well as in the District of Columbia.
