COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio children’s hospital has created a center to study suicide in efforts to better understand it and stop it from happening.

Jeff Bridge, a suicide researcher at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, said the first goal is to apply discoveries made by studying suicide to create interventions in children who see suicide as an answer to their problems.

Bridge tells the Columbus Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1RAU369 ) that the Center for Suicide Prevention and Research also aims to bolster the hospital’s relationship with school districts and collaborate with them on a prevention program.

Thirteen students killed themselves last year in Franklin County and another seven in the first half of this year.
