Jason Flatt Youth Suicide Awareness Act

The Kansas Legislature passed SB 323 which is known as the Jason Flatt Youth Suicide Awareness Act.  This provision requires each school district to provide suicide awareness and prevention programming to all school staff. 

If you or a friend need to talk with a counselor for help or for resources available in your area, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255), a free, 24-hour hotline available to anyone in suicidal crisis or emotional distress. Your call will be routed to the nearest crisis center to you.
