The Jason Foundation
Clark Flatt lost his son to suicide in 1997, and after researching the silent epidemic that is youth suicide, Flatt founded the Jason Foundation to empower youth and inform parents and educators how to recognize the warning signs and solicit the right professional help. The Jason Foundation has developed a school-based curriculum for students as well as informational seminars and information kits for teachers and parents that is nationally and internationally available. The Jason Foundation has been active in influencing legislation around the country for including youth suicide awareness and prevention training through The Jason Flatt Act. Visitors to The Jason Foundation website can download the “A Friend Asks” app, view informational videos, and get more information on The Jason Foundation’s initiatives.
