Saving lives in America's 'Suicide Belt'

Health workers in Montana distribute free trigger locks and connect troubled souls with doctors online.

    The American West is famous for its spectacular landscape and culture of individualism, but also for its high suicide rates.

    In the state of Montana, an average 15 people try to take their own lives every day.

    To try to save lives, health workers are giving out thousands of free trigger locks.
