I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

Shootings among rival gangs in the already troubled suburb have reached such a level that the majority of the inhabitants want to move away for safety reasons.

Would the following sentence be OK?

Because Maria has tried to harm herself a couple of times, her parents have taken her to a mental hospital for her own safety.
