Suicide Prevention in Yamhill County

Suicide is a complex and multi-faceted issue, and its prevention requires an organized and concerted effort. Yamhill County Public Health fosters partnerships with agencies, organizations and communities across the region to ensure that our approach to suicide prevention is comprehensive, efficient, and effective. Through these efforts, we intend that each community member will become more resilient and better equipped to promote mental health wellness and prevent suicide.

Using data-driven processes and prioritizing community member engagement, the county has identified and implemented evidence-based and culturally competent best-practice prevention strategies to reduce suicide deaths in our community. These programs are carefully chosen and work in concert to meet the specific needs and requests of populations across the county.
