'Be Nice' starts in all Muskegon-area schools

Be Nice mental health education will continue for five years.

MUSKEGON, MICH. - The Muskegon business community is giving more than $250,000 to bring "Be Nice" education into every school in the county. 

The money supports the "Be Nice" mental health education for five years. On Monday, Sept. 12, leaders from all school districts in Muskegon County received their curriculum kits and were trained on how to implement the program at their schools.

"Be Nice" is a suicide prevention and anti-bullying program aimed at creating more positive communities inside schools.

The program is being taught at numerous schools in Ottawa, Oceana, Mason, Kent and Allegan counties.
