The proposal is to “encourage schools to implement evidence-based suicide prevention training for students in grades 6 through 12.”
With Tuesday being World Teen Mental Wellness Day, Bilirakis showcased a proposal he is backing to “encourage schools to implement evidence-based suicide prevention training for students in grades 6 through 12.”
Peters first introduced the bill in June and the U.S. House passed the measure on a voice vote in September. However, the U.S. Senate did not clear the companion bill championed by then U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Col.
At the start of last year, Rubio teamed up with U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, to bring back the “Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Act” which would “enhance the State Department’s role in combating and monitoring anti-Semitism around the world.”
This week, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., a member of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called on the Trump administration to impose sanctions on senior commanders of Bangladesh’s Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), which has reportedly killed more than 400 people extrajudicially since 2015.
Bilirakis brought out the “Effective Suicide Screening in the Emergency Department Act” back in October. The bill “helps to create protocols for identifying, assessing and treating individuals in the E.R. who may be at risk for suicide.”
Last week, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., joined other U.S. senators in sending a letter to the United Nations permanent representatives for Estonia and France, the current and incoming president of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), in support of the United States Mission to the United Nations’ (USUN) call for an immediate UNSC meeting on recent actions taken by the Chinese government to undermine Hong Kong’s autonomy.
