September 4 to 10 is National Suicide Prevention Week and to build awareness and work toward suicide prevention, the Deschutes County has created a video in order to increase awareness about teen depression and how it is one of the risk factors for suicide, the video also encourages parents to reach out to teens who exhibit the warning signs of depression. To view the video follow the link below called "Suicide Prevention Video". You can also learn more about suicide prevention day, and how to spread the word by clicking here
In Tillamook County, we lose at least 2 teenagers every year to suicide. A suicidal youth may not ask for help, but that doesn't mean that help isn't wanted. Most people who commit suicide don't want to die—they just want to stop hurting. Suicide prevention starts with recognizing the warning signs and taking them seriously.
If you are interested in learning:
- How to help someone who may be thinking of committing suicide

- Knowing where to go for help
We offer QPR, Suicide Prevention trainings around Tillamook County.
