Tell your senator: Support youth suicide prevention
Suicide is the second-leading cause of death for teenagers across the country. The devastating impacts of COVID-19 mean that youth mental health is suffering – and we cannot afford to lose any more lives. Youth deserve support and solutions, and they need them now.
The STANDUP Act, led by Sen. Hassan (NH) and Sen. Ernst (IA) would increase access to suicide prevention training for students across the country. More students in middle and high school would be trained to know the signs of suicide and take action to prevent a tragedy.
Sen. Richard Burr leads an important committee that can influence the future of this bill. Please contact him now and ask him to support the STANDUP Act.
