Why Is This Important?

In 2019, the suicide rate in Clermont County was 21.3 (per 100,000). According to the CDC, risk factors for suicide include:

  • Family history of suicide
  • Family history of child maltreatment
  • Previous suicide attempt(s)
  • Unwillingness to seek help because of the stigma attached to mental health and substance abuse disorders or suicidal thoughts

Adolescence is a time of great physical, social and emotional change, which for some can lead to mental health challenges, including increased risk of suicide.  Among youth in 9th – 12th grade surveyed through the Clermont County Health Assessment Survey (2019), 17.3% considered suicide in the past year while 6.9% attempted suicide one or more times in the past year.
