Newly Posted: Statewide Decline in Youth Suicide Rate from '97-'07

May is Mental Health Month, and over the next several weeks, kidsdata.org will release a number of measures of children's emotional well being in California, from depression to school connectedness to bullying. This week, kidsdata.org's statewide expansion continues with the addition of statewide data for another key measure of emotional well being - youth suicides and self-inflicted injuries. These newly available data, covering the years 1995 to 2007, are available by age, gender, and race/ethnicity, making it easy to pinpoint trends and disparities across California.

Kidsdata.org is a public service sponsored by the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health. You can use these data, as well as related measures of emotional and behavioral health, in reports, presentations, proposals, advocacy work, program planning and other efforts. Data on more topics will be phased in over the next several months.
