I thought people on the FORT might want to help with this important issue that is dear to my heart.


Urge for the immediate passage of the Garrett Lee Smith Memorial Act

On July 8th the U.S. Senate passed the Garrett Lee Smith Memorial Act by unanimous consent. The House version (H.R. 4799) has now been introduced. In order for this important bill to become law, the House must also pass the Garrett Lee Smith Memorial Act.

Please write your Representative today and ask him/her to cosponsor H.R. 4799 and urge for its immediate passage.

When passed, this bill will provide support for the planning, implementation, and evaluation of organized activities involving statewide youth suicide early intervention and prevention strategies and funds for campus mental and behavioral health service centers.
