MINNEOLA, Fla. - Lake County Schools is hoping to bring the entire community together in Minneola in hopes of stopping a troubling trend when it comes to teen suicides. 

Last month, Lake Minneola High School student Seth Sutherland shot and killed himself on campus. 

According to the Orlando Sentinel, another student hanged himself at his home earlier this month. 

Last week, a third student was rushed to the hospital after sneaking onto the campus and taking dozens of pills. 

On Monday, the city and school district will host a special resource fair to give students who may be in trouble the information they need to get help. 

The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. in Lake Minneola High School's auditorium.
