For the Awareness & Prevention of Youth Suicide
Hosted by Greenleaf Center, LLC in support of The Jason Foundation “Keeping more than dreams alive” The Jason Foundation, Inc. (JFI) is an educational organization dedicated to the awareness and prevention of youth suicide. JFI provides tools and resources for students, parents and teachers/youth workers to help them identify and assist at-risk youth. This is accomplished through a series of programs including the B1 Project. The purpose of the Project is to educate youth, students, youth workers, and parents on recognizing the warning signs of youth suicide and how to help a friend, family member, or loved one. B1 is designed to be quick, informative, and target the most important aspects of youth suicide prevention. Think about it . . . the 2nd most likely thing to take a young person is suicide. Yet, no one ever talks about it until a tragedy occurs. That’s why the Jason Foundation and Rascal Flatts call youth suicide “The Silent Epidemic”.
