Oregon schools failing on suicide prevention: Survey shows high schools across the state use widely differing approaches to help students in need
by Ariana Sinclair, Sravya Tadepalli and Michael Tobin
Catalyst surveyed the 10 largest districts in the state, as well as the biggest school district in every county not already represented by the survey. In all, Catalyst asked 40 districts for the teaching plans they used to discuss suicide prevention with high school students. The districts’ responses to the survey revealed a wide discrepancy in how schools across the state teach students about suicide.
