CDC releases Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance Report

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released their Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) titled, “Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance – United States, 2019.” The report includes an MMWR Surveillance Supplement that features several articles related to interpersonal violence victimization, suicidal ideation and behaviors, transportation risk behaviors, prescription opioid misuse and use of alcohol and other substances, and trends in violence victimization and suicide risk by sexual identity. Notably, although declining, "substance use among high school students remains common – with approximately 1 in 3 students reporting current alcohol use, 1 in 5 reporting current marijuana use, and 1 in 7 reporting current binge drinking."
