Suicide Rapid Response helps Oregon’s communities heal from youth death by suicide, while limiting and containing risk of further harm by partnering with experts in the field to provide direct education, support, and resources.
Suicide Rapid Response (SRR) is led and coordinated by the Lines for Life Prevention Team in conjunction with community service providers. These services are paid for by Oregon Health Authority (OHA). SRR offers support and services to communities who have been impacted by a loss of a youth to suicide, ages 24 and younger.

The Suicide Rapid Response system is collaboratively designed to include evidence-based best practices that are monitored, evaluated, and responsive to community needs.
