Jason Flatt Act

Jason Flatt was 16 years old when he ended his own life in 1997. He seemed to be a person who really enjoyed life. He had many friends and was active in sports and youth groups. In 2001 a New Jersey legislator presented an idea about providing training to teachers increase awareness concerning teen suicide. As of March 2018, twenty states have passed a law supporting similar programs. Alabama passed the Jason Flatt Act in 2016. Please follow the links below for more information.
