Illinois lawmakers are holding a hearing to talk about youth suicides after the deaths of three children in three weeks.
At Friday's hearing, experts and lawmakers will talk about how to prevent future suicides and how to educate families and young people.
The hearing comes after three recent deaths.
In February, the Cook County medical examiner ruled a 10-year-old boy killed himself at his Evanston school. A day later, an 11-year-old boy died in Chatham. And later that month the state Department of Children and Family Services said an 11-year-old girl was found dead in her home.
The new Illinois House of Representatives Youth and Family Committee is hosting the hearing, which will be held at the Thompson Center in Chicago.

My Two Cents on This Article-
How about the States figure out how to make money off the lawmakers.. The Judges and CPS so they can leave our innocent not abused children right where they belong with their bio parents at HOME.. Stop taking our children for profit! Stop drugging our children for profit! STOP STOP STOP LEAVE OUR FAMILIES ALONE!
