The number two cause of death among teens and young adults in Ohio, behind accidents, is suicide. More than twice as many people die by suicide in this state each year than by homicide.

State legislators are proposing a bill that would try to increase awareness on college campuses around the state. What else can be done to reduce suicide among young adults?
