Lawmakers in Utah have passed legislation that would require schools to alert parents if students are involved in bullying and/or threaten suicide, and another bill requiring the state's junior high schools and high schools to launch suicide-prevention programs. Suicide is the second-leading cause of death for teenagers in Utah, which has one of the highest youth suicide rates in the country. Both bills now go to the governor for a signature.
