Important Disclaimer:

Although The Jason Foundation, Inc. and our partners make every effort to insure our programs are well-formatted and professionally address the problem of youth suicide, no one program can guarantee to prevent youth suicide. Our program’s goal is to provide you educational materials that will better help equip you to recognize “signs of concern” that may demonstrate that a young person is possibly struggling with issues that left unaddressed or untreated could result in suicidal ideation.

Professional help should always be sought whenever there is a possibility of suicidal ideation. Never try to solve this type of problem without obtaining professional help.
