Our chapter is actively engaged in advocating for local, state, and national policies that we believe will help prevent suicide.
We need your help to spread the word that prevention is possible and ensure that public policies make a difference.

The Chapter was instrumental in getting the Jason Flatt Act passed in 2012 that requires teachers and other certified school personnel to participate in two hours training in suicide prevention as a condition of their recertification. At the 2013 National Chapter Leadership Conference, the SC chapter won the Outstanding Chapter Advocacy Program award recognizing the JFA and other legislative advocacy activity. Contact the SC Public Policy Committee Chair Tom Robinson if you would like to explore becoming a field advocate or have ideas for legislative initiatives.
