Launch a national initiative for suicide prevention

America is facing the highest suicide rate in 30 years—and it’s becoming increasingly prevalent among adolescents, college students, veterans, and older adults. As president, Hillary will create a national, cross-governmental suicide prevention initiative to be led by the surgeon general and involve all relevant agencies, from HHS to the VA to USDA. She’ll provide federal support for suicide prevention programs in high schools and on college campuses, and she’ll work to ensure schools are meeting the mental health needs of all students—particularly LGBT students and students of color.
