Suicide Prevention Legislation Advances

Senate Bill 972, suicide prevention legislation authored by Senator Anthony Portantino, who represents Monrovia, has apassed the Assembly Education Policy Committee. SB 972 would require public, charter, and private schools to print the suicide prevention hotline number and/or text crisis lines on student identification cards for grades seven through all college institutions.

  1. What about hotlines for other crisis/issues? Domestic Violence? Sexual Assault? Isn't there some room on Student IDs for these as well? Is this the kind of ineffectual legislation we pay Partantino for? Or, perhaps there are better and more effective ways of helping our young ones deal with such concerns.
