In May 2005, Psychiatric Solutions, Inc. (PSI) became National Clinical Affiliate for The Jason Foundation, Inc. (JFI). The Jason Foundation is a nationally recognized leader in educational programs for the awareness and prevention of youth suicide, which is currently the third leading cause of death among youth ages 15-24.
The affiliation between PSI and JFI creates a national network that provides programs and seminars about suicide awareness and prevention for students, educators, youth workers and parents. These programs help provide individuals with the information, tools and resources they need to assist in identifying at-risk youth and finding them help within their communities. By affiliating with PSI, JFI is now the only national educational prevention program with 24/7 clinical backup.

“As the nation's leader in behavioral healthcare, PSI is committed to improving the lives of the individuals who entrust their care to us.
