Kansas Attorney General Schmidt announced today the launch of a mobile app, as a new tool to prevent youth suicide by providing information about warning signs and direct access to help for youth in Kansas. The free app, called “Kansas – A Friend AsKS,” was developed in partnership with The Jason Foundation, a national suicide prevention organization, and can be found in both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. The app connects youth to tools and resources to help a friend, or themselves, who may be struggling with thoughts of suicide. The app also offers the option for users to call or text the 988 mental health crisis line, which was launched in Kansas in July.
