Thank you for urging your member of Congress to prioritize youth suicide prevention and vote for the Suicide Training and Awareness Nationally Delivered for Universal Prevention Act of 2021 (STANDUP Act)! The bipartisan bill has officially been signed into law!
The STANDUP Act is the first federal legislation to provide uniform research-based suicide prevention and awareness standards in schools to address the mental health needs of all students. Signing this bill into law was crucial since our country is currently witnessing soaring rates of mental health challenges amongst our children and youth, exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
This was only possible because of your participation!
