The 2013 report on Suicide in Oregon* is out and it's troubling.
Suicide was the second leading cause of death among persons 10-24 years of age in Oregon in 2013. Males in that age group were over 4 times more likely to die by suicide than females in that same age group.
The suicide rate among Oregon veterans 18-24 years of age was almost six times higher than the state average rate for the same age group of non-veterans.
