PARKLAND, Fla.--After a second parkland school shooting survivor took their own life, county officials met to disucuss how to prevent more tragedies. They recommended parents to use the Columbia-suicide severity rating scale, a risk assessment tool used by mental health professionals. 

Ryan Petty, whose daughter was killed in the shooting, is telling parents to talk with their children.

"Unfortunately sometimes it takes a tragedy or multiple tragedies to get the word out. I'm not sure parents, I think we knew that some of our students were suffering but sometimes we don't know which ones are suffering because they, they pretend things are OK," Petty advises parents.

Last weekend, Sydney Aiello took her own life. She was a recent graduate from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Her mother says she was close friends with one of the shooting victims. She was suffering from PTSD and survivor's guilt.
