But this much is clear: The district followed the law.
Michigan is not one of the 12 states that require public schools to have mental health policies, or among 27 others that mandate suicide prevention training for all school staff.
In 2014, there were 1,354 suicides reported in Michigan, nearly 400 more than in 2000, an increase of 39 percent.
Numerous considerations must be taken into account when analyzing the causes behind suicide rate increases, but available data indicate certificate of need (CON) laws — regulations of the health care industry imposed at the state level — may be one of the most important policies linked to rising suicide rates.
The suicide rate in Michigan is slightly higher than the national average; in 2014, there were 13.23 suicides per 100,000 people in Michigan and 12.93 suicides per 100,000 nationally.
Michigan is 32nd among the states, but its suicide rate has risen by startling numbers since 2000.
Murder at your every footstep A child's toy sudden death Sniper blazes you through your knees Falling down can you feel the heat Burn!
