More than 600 lives are lost to suicide in Oregon every year (see Data and Reports), leaving many "survivors" to cope with the tragedy and loss. Although suicide claims more lives than motor vehicle crashes, it is often surrounded by silence and stigma.
This 17 minute video and discussion guide were developed by the Yamhill County Suicide Prevention Coalition and presented at community forums as a means to begin a discussion within the community, to raise awareness, and to combat stigma.
