It is sad to hear that the second-leading cause of death in those between the ages of 10-44 is suicide. The infographic you made is aesthetically pleasing and based on the data, seems like something that many PCPs will be able to utilize. Thank you for introducing me to the various screening methods and resources that are used when assessing suicide risk.

Talking about suicide as a community of health care providers and as general community members and neighbors is an important part of prevention. Thanks for your work in this challenging area.

Thank you for doing this important project! I had no idea that suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death in 10-44 year olds in VT. I think your infographic and physician surveys are a great step in the right direction for suicide prevention. It would be interesting to see how the pandemic has affected VT providers' ability to screen patients and provide care for positive screens. Overall, great work!
