Suicide and Self Harm

Suicide is another major concern for the populations served by the WVU ICRC. West Virginia’s suicide-related fatality rate is substantially higher than the national rate and is the highest per capita rate among all states east of the Rocky Mountains. The WVU ICRC is collaborating with community-based partnerships in efforts to reduce suicide, and has focused several prior projects and current research proposals on the topic of suicide.
