Youth suicide rates have climbed in the past two decades, and many schools across the country have taken a proactive approach to prevention. Experts say schools are the ideal place to try to prevent suicides, which are now the second leading cause of death for those aged10 to 19. Freedom High, outside Washington, is tackling the issue of student mental health head-on.
