Educational Curricula, Programs, and Seminars
for the Awareness and Prevention of Youth Suicide
Project Tennessee is entering in its third year as a collaborative project of the Department of Education, the Department of Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities, and The Jason Foundation, Inc. Project Tennessee is also a component of The Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network efforts in Tennessee in addressing youth suicide in Tennessee.
- School-based Curriculum – “A Promise for Tomorrow” for use in grades 7-12
- Free to any school, church, or youth organization in Tennessee
- In-service training for educators and youth workers
- Parent seminars
Project Tennessee, in response to the statewide suicide prevention effort, has worked to provide students, teachers and parents the information they need to reduce the number of youth suicides in our state. The goal is to place youth suicide prevention curriculum in every middle and high school across the state. We believe that it will take a triangle of prevention to make a difference. We must make our teachers, students and parents aware of the problem of youth suicide and give them the tools and resources needed to identify at-risk youth.
