The #COVID19 pandemic has taken a mental toll on everyone, including our children. As we continue to recognize #SuicidePreventionMonth, we must ensure that schools have the tools and resources needed to identify and assist students who may be struggling with their #MentalHealth.
That’s why I introduced and continue to push for passage of the Cady Housh and Gemesha Thomas Suicide Prevention Act, which would provide grants to school districts for early-intervention and suicide prevention training for faculty and secondary staff.
Our children are our most valuable resource, and every child that dies by suicide is an unimaginable tragedy. We must do everything possible to get them the help they need in times of distress, and we can start by passing the Cady Housh and Gemesha Thomas Suicide Prevent Act.
