Preventing Teen Suicide

Marnie Kauffman, FrontLine Service Crisis Intervention Specialist and other panelists discussed preventing teen and young adult suicide.

The number two cause of death among teens and young adults in Ohio, behind accidents, is suicide. More than twice as many people die by suicide in this state each year than by homicide. We do so much to protect our kids. Protecting them from themselves may be the hardest thing of all. State legislators are proposing a bill that would try to increase awareness on college campuses around the state. What else can be done to reduce suicide among young adults?
