Mental Health Educational Resources
Under current law, the safe2tell program is required to provide awareness and educational materials to preschools. The act removes this requirement.
The act clarifies that safe2tell does not have to provide information about a call to law enforcement and school personnel if the call was forwarded to the statewide behavioral crisis response system. The act requires the safe2tell program to develop training materials outlining appropriate responses to safe2tell tips to ensure standardized messaging. The act directs the department of law to devise a process and develop standardized protocols so that any communication related to mental health or substance use received by safe2tell may be transferred to the statewide behavioral crisis response system.
