Schools to get help dealing with suicide

The Federal Government will pay for specialists to be sent to high schools when a student has committed suicide. The program will be run by Headspace, Australia's national youth mental health foundation.

Mental Health Minister Mark Butler says about two to three students kill themselves every week. He says the teams will help school communities spot people with mental health problems and stop copycat suicides.
