Ohio officials to discuss youth suicide prevention

State lawmakers recently passed a bill designating Sept. 10 as "Ohio Suicide Prevention Day."

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio officials plan to discuss the state's efforts to prevent youth suicide and how to raise awareness of the issue.



Attorney General Mike DeWine says his office will announce a new partnership Tuesday with a nonprofit organization called The Jason Foundation that works with teachers to identify and help at-risk young people.



Former Ohio State president Gordon Gee sits on the board of the Hendersonville, Tenn.-based organization. He is slated to appear at the Tuesday news conference at the Statehouse to discuss the efforts.
