Columbia family grieving, healing weeks after 12-year-old took his own life

Columbia seventh-grader Robyn Bittenbender came home from the Fairmount Behavioral Health System clinic in Philadelphia on Sept. 8. 

It was the conclusion of a one-week stay for Robyn at Fairmount, which offers behavioral health treatment services. 

"He felt good coming out of Fairmount," mother Deana Fisher recalled. 

Two days later, on Sept. 10, on what was Suicide Prevention Day, Robyn took his own life.

He was only 12.
