Requires institutions of higher education to implement suicide prevention programs and raise awareness of mental health services
A 2293 (Jasey, Kennedy, Moen) NJEA supports this common sense measure to help reduce the risk of suicide and to bring more awareness of the mental health services available. The bill pursues a smart approach of providing additional training to increase the knowledge of resources available to help students who need mental health services. With the challenges facing our students and our communities and the increased need for mental health needs, it is time to bolster these prevention programs and to assist students in crisis.
NJEA urges you to support A 2293.
