Northern Michigan University's mental health policy under fire

Northern Michigan University’s mental health policy has been called into question after an educational foundation claimed administrators have violated students’ First Amendment Rights. 

ABC affiliate WBUP reports the foundation’s article stated that NMU’s mental health policies were questioned after an e-mail from the university said students would face disciplinary actions if they involved other students in any suicidal or self-destructive thoughts. 

A senior at NMU says the school makes it clear that students will not face retribution for using school-offered services regarding mental health. 

Communication between NMU and students with self-harm inclinations was changed in January with the help of the Mental Health and Wellbeing Taskforce, says the school. 

Administrators say they do not limit the speech of their students and want to do what is in the best interest for students in crisis.
