Lane County Suicide Prevention
Moses said suicide is as much an Oregon problem as it is a Lane County problem. According to a 2012 Oregon Health Report, the suicide rate in the state is 41 percent higher than the national average. "Unfortunately, the rate is about the same in Lane County," said Moses. The most frequent risk factors cited by the report were mental health problems, alcohol, substance abuse and depression.
