Epi-Aid On Youth Suicide In Santa Clara County: Preliminary Findings [presentation]
An Epi-Aid is an investigation of an urgent public health problem. The focus of Epi-Aids is to try to determine the cause(s) and/or extent of a specific health problem and to develop prevention and control recommendations. From 2009 through 2015, there were a number of suicides among incoming, current, or alumni members in one school district in Palo Alto, in Santa Clara County. In response, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) requested assistance from the CDC to understand youth suicide in Santa Clara County and the affected cities and school districts.
The preliminary results of the research are presented in a slideshow prepared by the Santa Clara County Public Health Department.
CHC’s Dr. Ramsey Khasho discussed the Center for Disease Control’s preliminary report on the results of this investigation in a Community Education Session on September 7, 2016. You may view his presentation here.
