Representative Andrea Schroeder's 'Save Our Students' plan - aimed at preventing suicide and helping young people when they need help the most - was signed into law this week by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. The measure previously won unanimous bipartisan support in the Michigan Legislature.
    As early as next academic year, Schroeder's "Save Our Students" plan will require schools that issue identification cards to include a 24-hour crisis and suicide prevention hotline on each card for students in grades 6 through 12. The objective is to combat the second-leading cause of death for Michigan young people between the ages of 10 and 24.
   Schroeder, of Oakland County's Independence Township said "I am so thankful the governor and legislators from both political parties saw the need for this plan and came together to help make it a reality," adding "This initiative to connect young people with someone to listen and offer support when they need hope the most will help save lives and prevent tragedies."
    The new law also calls for the Department of Health and Human Services to provide information materials for schools related to suicide prevention, depression, and anxiety. Schools will be encouraged to display this information on their websites and in select locations within school buildings.
