CHARDON -- Seven suicide attempts by students at the same Ohio high school where a mass shooting occurred in February have officials concerned.

The Willoughby News-Herald reports there were seven suicide attempts by six Chardon High School students from May through September. Administrators are now taking action to try to prevent others.

School district superintendent Joseph Bergant told the newspaper he thinks the February shooting at the school that left three students dead has taken its toll on survivors.

The district is now increasing efforts to spread awareness regarding the signs and symptoms of those who may be considering doing harm to themselves or others and need help.

Eighteen-year-old T.J. Lane is charged in the shooting, which also left three students wounded. His trial is pending.
