    either from drugs or suicide. two more people died from an OD who I went to high school with, learned about it over facebook. me and my brother listed out all of the people we knew from high school who died and we got up to 33.

    Im only 24 I feel like that is an insane number. can any of my older sherdog brethren enlighten me on if this is a normal occurrence? or is my generation riddled with depression and suicide?

    Are you from Ohio or West Virginia? I know both of those states have been hit hard by the opioid crisis. How many people went to your high school?

    That's an insanely high number. I'm 31 and only know a handful of people who died from high school.

    It definitely has to do with where you are from. I know about 3 or 4 people from my HS that have died and I am older than you. Have the drugs been hitting your area hard?

    the crazy thing is theyre all either suicide or OD. with the exception of 1 dying in a car accident. mind you these are all young adults and some killed themsleves when we were still in high school, the youngest being 15 at the time

    Sounds like an exaggeration. Or you had a huge high school


    I think my class was like 500 kids.

    Ive never used facebook so i dont know how many have died.

    Ive lost a good amount of friends. Around 10

    I looked up your school district on google. One of the high schools, Amador Valley, had a graduating class of roughly 600 people in the 2016 school year. Assuming that is average attendance you went to school with 2400 people. So a little over 1%. Looks to be about 5x higher than the national average for the age range.

    Yeah thats not that crazy.

    We had 4 kids die in one crash

    I personally knew a couple that died recently.

    Im also 28. So this is over 10 years.. But i imagine theres a similar amount from my school if you include all the years i went. Which isnt just your 4 years... You get a new class every year


    Lots of car accidents. Overdose, and a few suicides

    I went to foothill. but some of the kids on the list went to Amador too. I guess I should specify that there are 2 high schools in the city, but they intermingle.

    I find this highly unbelievable. I'm actually writing a research paper on suicide rates amongst Native Americans, and the national numbers for all people are something like 8 in 100000. Seriously doubt you know over 20 people who've killed themselves.

    Foothill is roughly 2,000 students according to it's website. If you include all students from both schools the mortality rate is still a little over twice as high as it should be.
