Suicide prevention

August Charity of the Month: The Jason Foundation

by Staff Blogger | August 1st, 2014

Suicide is affecting more lives in the United States than ever before, especially among young people. It’s the second leading cause of death among middle and high school students and is the third leading cause of death for college students. Each of these deaths can be prevented, and The Jason Foundation is one of the groups that are working to eradicate suicide.

The parents of suicide victim, Jason Flatt, established the organization following his untimely death on July 16, 1997. Since that time, the group has educated thousands of young people, parents, and educators about the dangers of suicide and warning signs to watch out for.

The Jason Foundation has also worked to create legislation that requires teachers to receive suicide prevention education.

These are just a few reasons why the Nashville personal injury lawyers with Ponce Law named The Jason Foundation as our firm’s August charity of the month. We will donate $1 to the group for every unique “Like” on our Facebook page during the next four weeks. You can help do your part to prevent suicide with just one click.
