Aurora Charter Oak Hospital is proud to partner with the Jason Foundation, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to the prevention of youth suicide though education and awareness programs.
“The Jason Foundation, Inc. (JFI) is dedicated to the prevention of the “Silent Epidemic” of youth suicide through educational and awareness programs that equip young people, educators/youth workers and parents with the tools and resources to help identify and assist at-risk youth.
JFI believes that awareness and education are the first steps to prevention. We want to establish a Triangle of Prevention by providing students, parents and teachers the tools and resources to help identify and help at-risk youth. This is accomplished through a curriculum unit for students and informational seminars for teachers and parents. The programs provide resources to accomplish this goal. The materials are easy to use and are intended to provide educational information. There is no intent to diagnose or treat suicidal ideation. JFI’s intention is to empower youth, educators and parents to help recognize when young people are in pain and know to get professional help involved as soon as possible. The Jason Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit 501c3.”
We work closely with JFI to ensure our school and adolescent program partners have the materials they need to provide suicide prevention information to the families they serve. If you would like to learn more about JFI, visit their website at jasonfoundation.com.
