Suicide leading cause of death in youths

July 19, 2019

Did you know that suicide is the second leading cause of death for our nation’s youth and second leading cause of death in California ages 10-24?  

#IWONTBESILENT is an awareness campaign by The Jason Foundation (JFI) to raise the national conversation of the “silent epidemic” of youth suicide. The purpose of the campaign is to challenge those around you to learn the warning signs associated with suicide and help spread awareness of this terrible tragedy. Taking a few short minutes to challenge the people you know will help take some of the silence away from this “silent epidemic.”

The www.iwontbesilent.com website will offer suggestions on how you can help raise the national conversation of youth suicide prevention. The site provides users with ideas on how they can conduct an awareness campaign within their school, business, church or other organization. Materials are available for download so that you can obtain them within minutes. JFI also encourages those participating in the campaign to take pictures from the awareness event, and to display these pictures with others that have taken part in the challenge.   

JFI is a nationally recognized leader in youth suicide prevention and awareness and provides programs to all 50 states at no cost through their National Network of Affiliate Offices. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at  615-264-2323.
