The Jason Foundation And HCA Announce New Education And Awareness Collaboration To Help Prevent Youth Suicide

The Jason Foundation, Inc. (JFI), a youth suicide prevention and awareness organization, and Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) today announced HCA has become a JFI National Community Affiliate and will establish Community Resource Centers at ten hospitals that provide adolescent behavioral health services.

The Community Resource Centers will serve as hubs where parents, teachers, guidance counselors, students, churches and other community organizations can get educational materials and learn about training programs available through JFI.

One of the nation’s leading providers of healthcare services, HCA has supported JFI for several years through board involvement and volunteerism by HCA employees and grants from The HCA Foundation. HCA hospitals across the nation operate 54 behavioral health units and facilities, and the company is currently the second largest private provider of acute psychiatric inpatient services.

“HCA was one of the first companies to believe in JFI and our mission starting back in 1999,” said JFI’s President / Founder Clark Flatt. “We are excited to formally affiliate with HCA as one of our dynamic National Community Affiliates that will help address the serious national health issue of youth suicide.”

“HCA is proud to support the Jason Foundation,” said Terry Bridges, President of HCA Behavioral Health Services. “This organization’s mission to identify and intervene at the earliest possible moment with our youth and soldiers struggling with mental illness and suicidal thoughts, is consistent with HCA’s commitment to the care and improvement of human life. These efforts can and do save lives and promote mental wellness, which make our communities better places for everyone.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, suicide is the second-leading cause of death for youth between the ages of 10 and 24, resulting in approximately 4,800 lives lost each year.

About the Companies:

The Jason Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting “The Silent Epidemic” of youth suicide through educational programs for young people, educators, parents, and other community groups. JFI, headquartered in Hendersonville, Tenn., was founded in 1997 after the tragic death of Jason Flatt, the 16-year-old son of Clark Flatt.
