Georgia schools could require suicide prevention training

ATLANTA — Georgia schools could require their staff to be trained in suicide prevention.

This requirement comes from the Jason Flatt Act — a new bill that has passed through both the Georgia House of Representatives and Senate. It would make suicide prevention education mandatory for staff in elementary and secondary schools throughout Georgia.

The bill has been sent to the governor’s office for final review.

If Gov. Nathan Deal signs the bill, Georgia will be the 14th state to pass the Jason Flatt Act.
