Focus on Suicide Prevention This Week


Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in Oregon, especially for young people. That's why the Deschutes County Children and Families Commission is releasing a video to inform parents of the warning signs of depression. Nick Stevenson with the County says you can also find the video on the Deschutes County website. “One video is focused on parents and teens and trying to empower parents to reach out to teens when they exhibit some of the signs of depression and to point parents toward resources at the County. This week is National Suicide Prevention Week. A recent survey in Deschutes County, found that 15% of 8th graders had contemplated suicide.
