The Jason Foundation

When his son, Jason, committed suicide at age 16, Clark Flatt established the Jason Foundation, Inc. (JFI) to help put a stop to youth suicide.

Developed in 1997, this non-profit organization, which is based out of Hendersonville, Tennessee, offers priceless resources and programs to communities all across the country. Flatt’s commitments include raising awareness and developing services and programs for members of communities to help at-risk youth.

Wilmington Treatment Center is the local JFI affiliate located in North Carolina. Here, parents, students, school personnel, and others can obtain materials and information that can help them identify and prevent youth suicide in the North Carolina area.

In North Carolina:

  • Suicide is the second leading cause of death for middle and high school age youth (12 – 18).
  • Suicide is the second leading cause of death for college age youth (18 – 22).

The North Carolina Youth Risk Behavioral Survey reported:

  • Almost 1 out of 6 young people seriously considered suicide in the past twelve months

Serving as a national leader in raising awareness and providing prevention programs to end youth suicide, JFI offers training, information, and services for free. To get more information about JFI or to request materials on youth suicide prevention, reach out to Wilmington Treatment Center or visit us online at www.jasonfoundation.com.

Going to Wilmington was the greatest decision I ever made. The encouragement I received will never be forgotten and I'm proud to say that I am sober today!
