    Scenario Two   Katie Thompson has started her junior year at a new school. Despite the fact that she is new, because of the record and reputation she brings with her from her old school, she is eligible to run and could easily win the election for class president this next year. She is very attractive, gets great grades in school, and brings with her an almost perfect record as a pitcher in varsity girls’ fast pitch softball from her previous school. Her parents recently divorced and although she lives with her dad, whom she loves, her mom, and her two younger sisters are living with her grandparents in another state. One evening in the local coffee shop, she finds herself talking with a friend about her future. Katie says she feels guilty because she doesn't see her mom and her sisters very often and cannot be the sort of daughter and sister she always wanted to be. She talks about being extremely lonely since her parents divorced. She knows that she needs to stay with her dad because he would be so terribly lonely if he did not have her around. Then, Katie admits that she has been very depressed and just "can't seem to shake it off.” She is fine at school, but when she is alone has often thought about taking a bottle of sleeping pills and "stop the hurting.” She believes if anybody discovered that she feels this way that her friends would think she was really strange, they would probably stop being her friends, and she would never be elected as president of the junior class. She says she is going to "be tough and get a handle on it" by herself, at least until she is elected. List at least 4 danger signals:
