FOX 2 Detroit says
Going back to school can be difficult. For many, there may be bullying, stress, negative family situations, difficulties with social acceptance, and other challenges can lead to risk of suicide.

In fact, suicide has increased by 300 percent in adolescents since 2010. It was once the third leading cause of death in those ages 15-24, but is now the second leading cause of death among this age group, and the sixth leading cause of death among 5-to 14-year-olds.

While this is quite alarming, it is preventable. To have a successful transition back to school, you need resources to live mentally well. Successful interventions require the coordination of resources.
