What If You Could Turn Back The Clock On Suicide?
Every four days, someone in Portland dies from suicide, making the city's suicide rate higher than the national rate, a new police report reveals. Oregon's suicide rate has long outpaced the country. In 2010, the state was 41 percent higher than the national average. In connection to the suicide report, the police bureau released a short video about suicide prevention, with advice and crisis line phone numbers. The video is posted on YouTube.
