Suicide is the second leading cause of death for ages 10-24. It is the second leading cause of death for college age youth. Another suicide fact? Suicide is the leading cause of PREVENTABLE death.
The Jason Foundation & E4 Health feels that it’s imperative that athletic department personnel, especially coaches, athletic trainers and academic advisors, notice team members’ behavioral changes and emotional struggles. These changes could be warning signs of suicidal ideation and it’s an opportunity for you to save a life.
Coaches Assistance Program (C.A.P.) is here to provide the education and help that you may need to recognize the signs and symptoms of suicide. Information is also provided to help you guide and support your athletes through stressful life situations.
