Increasing access to mental health resources and prevention programs at the state and national level is crucial to preventing suicide and supporting LGBTQ youth. You can take a stand during Mental Health Awareness Month this May by advocating for hundreds of thousands of young people who still need access to mental health care and suicide prevention resources.
Recently, the Senate HELP Committee passed the Mental Health Awareness and Improvement Act (S.689), which includes key elements of several life-saving bills that fund school-based prevention programs, suicide prevention, and access to care for young people. The act will soon be brought to the Senate floor – as citizens, we have the power to make a difference and help pass this important bill.
Urge your Senators to support the Mental Health Awareness and Improvement Act today by emailing them through our new Trevor Advocacy center. Together, with education and awareness, we can prevent suicide.
