New Suicide Prevention Plan Requirements

Written by: MTN Reporter: Peyton Poston

The New Higher Education Opportunity Act requires each State Institution of Higher Education to provide a Suicide Prevention Plan to all students, faculty, and staff at least one time each semester.

The Suicide Prevention Plan must be developed with campus mental health professionals and suicide prevention experts.

If help is need to prepare the plan institutions are urged to seek help from organizations such as the Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network.

According to the Tennessee Prevention Network, in 2016 alone 122 people between the ages of 15-24 years old committed suicide in Tennessee.
