COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) presented her “silent epidemic” legislation—which strives to raise awareness about suicide—to the Ohio Department of Education during their board meeting held on September 10th.


September 10th is designated as “Ohio Suicide Prevention Day.” In order to bring awareness to this day, Representative Anielski presented legislation at the state level to help combat this “silent epidemic.” House Bill 543, the Jason Flatt Act, In Honor of Joseph Anielski, mandates all public school personnel complete training to recognize the signs of those who may be at risk of harming themselves. Additionally, House Bill 149 designates every September 10th as “Ohio Suicide Prevention Day.”


“Our most precious gifts, our children, at times need us to step in and give them immediate assistance,” said Rep. Anielski. “ Suicide is the second-leading cause of death for those ages 15-24 years old in Ohio. Suicide is a major preventable cause of premature death and the training will assist school personnel in helping our children."
