53-21-1105. (Temporary) Statement of policy -- access to information. (1) The prevention of suicide is both the policy of the state of Montana and a community responsibility. Many community professionals have expertise that can be used to promote strategies and supports to prevent suicide. The use of these professionals in reviewing suicides can lead to a greater understanding of the causes of death and the methods of preventing deaths.
(2) It is the intent of the legislature to establish the Montana suicide review team to study the incidence and causes of suicides in Montana and to make recommendations for community or statewide change, if appropriate, that may help prevent future deaths.
