Tennessee Won't Be Silent is our push to reach a majority of citizens in Tennessee with the positive
message that suicide is preventable and enable those citizens to reach out for help for their loved
ones and friends. Ultimately, as more people reach out for help, and more resources are available, we
should begin to see a reduction in the rates of suicide in Tennessee.
#TNWONTBESILENT is The Jason Foundation's challenge to everyone to raise the conversation about the "silent epidemic" of suicide.
Tennessee Governor Bill Lee has been a strong supporter of #TNWontBeSilent. Watch his video message. Governor Lee also signed a Proclamation declaring September 6 - 12, 2020, as Tennessee Won't Be Silent Week.

The Jason Foundation, Inc. (JFI) is dedicated to the prevention of the “Silent Epidemic” of youth suicide through educational and awareness programs that equip young people, educators/youth workers and parents with the tools and resources to help identify and assist at-risk youth.
