Youth Planning Committee
Suicide is a growing problem that greatly affects present-day youth. According to the New Jersey Department of Health, suicide is the third leading cause of death among youth between the ages of 10 and 24. This rate is even higher among underrepresented youth including people of color and those part of the LGBTQ+ community, as well as other marginalized communities.
The Youth Planning Committee is a group of individuals spanning multiple ages, backgrounds and locations in the New Jersey area. Though this group is diverse, we share a common goal of comprising a state-wide campaign to spread awareness about youth suicide. Members of the Youth Planning Committee will attend meetings, participate in youth-driven programs, and be part of a motivated group of like-minded individuals.
