ALBANY, N.Y. — Probation departments across New York have started screening young offenders for risk of suicide as a way to connect them with mental health services.

Ten counties in upstate New York are participating in the program developed by researchers at Columbia University. The project, called e-Connect, includes counties that cover rural swaths of the state.

Probation officials say they hope addressing young offenders’ mental health needs will help cut down their chances of getting in trouble in the future.

They say the program will streamline access to mental health services at a time when research shows suicide rates among teenagers and young adults have been rising nationally. A report in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that 2017 suicide rates for teenagers and young adults nationwide were the highest since at least the start of the century.
