Suicide attempts in Clallam County are two to three times the state average for some age groups, according to the second annual United Way “report card” on community health.
The report card, a snapshot of Clallam County’s health and human services, shows things have not changed much in 10 years, United Way Executive Director Patty Hannah said.
The report card will be released to the public Tuesday during a United Way meeting in the Raymond Carver Room of the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., Port Angeles.
The organization will use the report card to help set funding priorities, Hannah said, noting some social service needs have become more acute over the years.
The report compares data on teen-age pregnancy, high school graduation rates and other aspects of the county.This full report appears in today’s editions of the Peninsula Daily News, on sale throughout Clallam and Jefferson counties. Click onto “Subscribe” to order your copy via U.S. mail.
