Ohio Suicide Prevention Bill Proposed

Written by 

Ohio lawmakers offer suicide prevention proposal
   COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A bill is being proposed in Ohio that would require community colleges and universities to have suicide prevention programs on and off campus.
 
   The proposal calls for access to mental health programs and crisis intervention, such as a hotline. Colleges would need plans for telling students about prevention activities and communicating with students, staff and parents after the loss of a student to suicide.
 
   The Board of Regents and the state Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services would post free materials online to help schools meet the requirements.
 
   Rep. Marlene Anielski  co-sponsored the measure.  She lost her son to suicide in 2010.
 
   Anielski, a Republican from Independence, says students need to know that programs and help are available to them should they find themselves struggling.
