Senate Bill 249 was passed June 7, 2021 which will allow for 3 mental health days for all students across Nevada. SB249 will not only make mental and behavioral health excused absences for students who need them, it would also quickly provide a red flag that a student is struggling before it’s too late.
ABOUT HOPE MEANS NEVADA
Hope For Teens was created by Caroline and Lauren Edgeworth to shine a light and to de-stigmatize discussions around mental health for middle school and high school students across Nevada. As Co-Chairs for the Teen Committee for Hope Means Nevada, their goal is to end suicides in Nevada.
