Morning workshops on will focus on suicide prevention. Disturbing new data from the Department of Health indicates the leading cause of death among Utah children ages 10-17 is suicide. “Last year we were over 600,” said Dr. Todd Grey, the chief medical examiner for Utah. “We’re certainly on track for being over 600 this year. So that means every day, on average, we’re going to see at least one to possibly two suicides.” A new report shows the youth suicide rate in Utah has nearly tripled since 2007. It is now the leading cause of death among 10 to 17-year-olds in Utah. (reported July 10, 2016 on Fox News)
