INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - More than 2,000 students ranging from fourth to eighth grade participated in the Choices for Champions program Thursday.

It's part of the "Have Hope" project sponsored by Community Health Network and WTHR.

Indiana has the nation's highest rate of high school students attempting suicide.

"Part of the problem is they give up hope and so bad things happen and they start piling on and they don't have support, adult support or friends to talk to and they get to the place where they think I don't have any other options," said Kim Walton, Community Health Network.

Not being afraid to talk about suicide is one of the solutions to stopping it.
