Suicide in Ohio Monographs Released

The study, “Suicide in Ohio: Facts, Figures and the Future,” was released Monday from Ohio University and the Ohio Alliance for Innovation in Population Health, where Executive in Residence Orman Hall oversaw the analysis. Officials with the Mental Health and Addiction Advocacy Coalition, the Ohio Alliance for Innovation in Population Health and the Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation were involved in developing the report.
