Jason Flatt Act- Suicide Prevention

National Suicide Prevention HOTLINE: 1-800-273-8255 Suicide is one of the leading causes of preventable death in our nation today. We lose an average of more than 113 young people each week to this tragedy that can be prevented. How can it be prevented you may ask? The Jason Foundation, Inc. believes that education is the key to prevention. The Jason Foundation’s programs and services are in response to this belief. Our nation should be familiar with the warning signs associated with suicide, suicide facts & statistics, and how to find help for at-risk youth. Together, we can save lives! Remember: Never be reluctant to get involved and always take any child/adolescent’s desire or intent to harm themselves seriously. If you suspect a young person of suicidal ideation, get them to professional help immediately. Suicide is Preventable. National Suicide Prevention HOTLINE: 1-800-273-8255

Jamari Terrell Williams Act- Student Bullying Prevention

National Suicide Prevention HOTLINE: 1-800-273-8255 The Jamari Terrell Williams Student Bullying Prevention Act has been signed into law by Governor Kay Ivey; it became effective on June 1, 2018. This new Act replaces the Anti-Harassment Policy that had previously been adopted by school systems throughout the state of Alabama beginning with the 2010-11 school year. The major change in this new Act is that it expands the current law to include student against student bullying, intimidation, violence, and threats of violence that occur off school property. In addition, the new Act specifically includes cyberbullying, which may also occur off school property. National Suicide Prevention HOTLINE: 1-800-273-8255

Coping with Traumatic Event Resources for Parents

Parents and caregivers play an essential role in helping children and teenagers recover from traumatic events. These resources are for parents, adoptive parents, resource/foster parents, grandparents, caregivers, and all others who care for children and teens. The more caregivers learn about how traumatic events affect their children (whether toddler, school-age, teen, youth, or adult), the more they understand the reasons for their children’s behaviors and emotions, and the better prepared they are to help them cope. When children know that caring adults are working to keep them safe and support them in understanding their reactions to trauma, most can recover and go on to live healthy and productive lives.
