Behavioral Health Resource Coordinators

Medium

During the 2019 legislative session, Senate bill 2149 established the requirement for each school within a district to designate an individual as a behavioral health resource coordinator.

The Department of Human Services' Behavioral Health Division is required (identified in Senate bill 2313) to provide resources on mental health awareness and suicide prevention to the behavioral health resource coordinator at each school.  Resources must include information on identifying warning signs, risk factors, and the availability of resources in the community.
