This July 12, 2014 TribLive News article talks about a new law in Pennsylvania that is requiring schools to begin to educate kids as young as 6th grade about suicide prevention.  This law was passed in part because across the country the number of deaths because of suicide has surpassed the number of deaths due to vehicle accidents.  other factors discussed in the article were some specific cases of suicide that were also a catalyst for the new law.
