September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month

More than 80% of all firearm-related death in Oregon is suicide. Access to firearms increases the risk of suicide.
A 2020 report published by Stanford Medicine found that men who owned handguns were eight times more likely than men who didn’t to die of self-inflicted gunshot wounds. Women who owned handguns were more than 35 times more likely than women who didn't to kill themselves with a gun.
