This commission works with state departments, and agencies, and nonprofit organizations on researching the causes and possible underlying factors of suicide in this state. The research must focus on demographics showing the highest suicide rates in this state in the decade immediately preceding the effective date of this act, and the highest growth in suicide rates during the time period described in this subdivision. In determining the demographics, the commission shall consider, at a minimum, all of the following: (i) Urban and rural areas, including the Upper Peninsula. (ii) Race. (iii) Sex. (iv) Occupation. (v) Age. (vi) Socioeconomic status. (b).  By 6 months after the effective date of this act, prepare and present a preliminary report of its research and findings to the legislature. The report must include identified causes for the increase in suicide rates among the demographics described in subdivision (a) and any other information the commission considers relevant. (c) By 1 year after the effective date of this act, and each year thereafter, prepare and present to the legislature an updated version of the report described in subdivision (b). The updated version of the report must include recommendations for reducing risk factors among the demographics described in subdivision (a) and contain a list of evidence-based programs for suicide prevention in this state with successful outcomes.
