Together We Can Save Lives!
Suicide is one of the leading causes of preventable death in our nation today. We lose an average of more than 130 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.
Experiencing a crisis? Call 911, 1-800-273-8255 (TALK), or text "Jason" to 741741.

National Domesic Violence Hotline
Domestic violence (also called intimate partner violence (IPV), domestic abuse or relationship abuse) is a pattern of behaviors used by one partner to maintain power and control over another partner in an intimate relationship.
Cuando una relación recién ha comenzado, no siempre se hace fácil que pueda verse desde el principio si esta va a convertirse en una relación abusiva.
