How Gannett newspapers across Wisconsin teamed up to cover youth suicide

With newspapers scattered across the country, Gannett newspapers are increasingly teaming up to cover big stories. In Wisconsin, 10 newspapers throughout the state worked together to cover the state’s youth suicide problem. About 25 reporters were working on the story, and the newspapers also held 10 town hall meetings to discuss the problem with their communities. The 10 newspapers all published a front-page editorial on Friday with five steps for addressing issues around children’s mental health, and the newspapers will also take their findings and sources from the series to the capital for a “day of action” in May.
