About this Resource:
Region IV is the largest HHS region, comprised of eight states and 26% of the U.S. population. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), suicide continues to be a leading cause of death and rates are increasing across the US, including the Southeast region. Populations at risk in Region IV states may face geographical disparities in accessing care, in particular crisis services. Visualizing relevant factors such as county-level suicide rates and available resources (e.g., crisis services), can be a challenge in a large, diverse region.
The Southeast MHTTC Data Visualization Project provides information on Region IV priorities in an easy to understand graphical format.
