YRBS Infographic for Suicide Prevention Week
The Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) team has created a new infographic to mark national Suicide Prevention Week, September 9-15, 2018. "Suicide Ideation and Attempts: Cuyahoga County High School Teens" uses data collected during 2017 in Cuyahoga County high schools. Some key takeaways from the infographic: 
  • In the past 12 months, 1 in 9 Cuyahoga County students attempted suicide.
  • Females reported higher rates of considering and attempting suicide than males.
  • 1 in 3 students know someone who completed suicide.
The infographic includes contact numbers to the Cuyahoga County Suicide Hotline and the Crisis Text Line. Just as importantly, the infographic dovetails with the YRBS data brief Protective Factors in Cuyahoga County, released last week. Protective factors are characteristics or conditions that can mitigate risk-taking and also affect how young people cope with environments that could negatively impact their health.
