Downey, Houghtaling, Quijano & Mosquera Measure to Designate September as "Youth Suicide Prevention Awareness" Advances(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Joann Downey, Eric Houghtaling, Annette Quijano and Gabriela Mosquera to spread awareness of youth suicide in New Jersey was recently released by an Assembly panel.
"Suicide is the third leading cause of death for youth ages 10-24 in the state of New Jersey," said Downey (D- Monmouth). "It is the second leading cause of death for youth ages in that group in the United States. More must be done to raise awareness of youth suicide to help parents, family and friends recognize the signs and seek support for their loved ones."
