Episode Info:

Roddy-James Rodriguez is just one of the hundreds of students on campus, who give up on life each year, and attempt suicide. The mental health crisis isn't new, and it isn't going away. And while schools are scrambling to beef up their support staff and resources, the reality is, the system is failing students.

Throughout his entire life, he was failed by pretty much everyone -- his schools, his community, and even his own family.
