I had a request for Oregon youth suicide data and data sources this a.m.from someone writing a grant and thought it could be useful information for your own programs and grantwriting efforts as well.
Here are links to Oregon data on youth suicide:
Oregon Violent Death Reporting System Report for 2006 (most recent); see the Executive Summary and Data Summary for context and see Suicides, pages 12 -16. http://www.oregon.gov/DHS/ph/ipe/nvdrs/docs/ViolentDeathsInOregon072508edited.pdf
The 2008 Injury Report; see the Executive Summary, Introduction, and Chapter 1 on suicide: http://www.oregon.gov/DHS/ph/ipe/docs/report2008v2.pdf
Vital Statistics Annual Report, 2005 (most recent); chapter 8 is on youth suicide and attempts: http://www.dhs.state.or.us/dhs/ph/chs/data/arpt/05v2/chp8toc.shtml
Oregon Healthy Teen (OHT) Survey; find state data for 2008 (from the 2007/2008 school year) for 8th and 11th graders. Find questions/responses on mental health (depression, thinking about making suicide attempt, attempts) for 8th graders at http://www.dhs.state.or.us/dhs/ph/chs/youthsurvey/ohteens/2008/8/mental8.pdf
and for 11th graders at http://www.dhs.state.or.us/dhs/ph/chs/youthsurvey/ohteens/2008/11/mental11.pdf
and county OHT data (2005/06 is most recent) at http://www.dhs.state.or.us/dhs/ph/chs/youthsurvey/ohteens/2006/county/index.shtml
Upon request, I'll send you a powerpoint presentation (in English or Spanish) with many of the Oregon youth suicide statistics broken down and in graphs, with notes, updated to include 2008 Oregon Healthy Teen data. You may tailor the presentation to your own needs and audience.
There are fact sheets for youth suicide at http://www.oregon.gov/DHS/ph/ipe/ysp/docs/factsheet.pdf (English) and http://www.oregon.gov/DHS/ph/ipe/ysp/docs/factsheetsp.pdf (Spanish) and for Oregon suicides, all ages, at: http://www.oregon.gov/DHS/ph/ipe/docs/Suicide.pdf
