SUMMARY AS PASSED HOUSE: (all summaries)

Institutions of higher education; notification of mental health treatment.  Requires the board of visitors or other governing board of any public institution of higher education to establish policies and procedures requiring the notification of a parent of a dependent student when such student receives mental health treatment at the institution's student health or counseling center and it has been determined that there exists a substantial likelihood that, as a result of mental illness the student will, in the near future, (i) cause serious physical harm to himself or others as evidenced by recent behavior or any other relevant information or (ii) suffer serious harm due to his lack of capacity to protect himself from harm or to provide for his basic human needs.  This bill incorporates HB 671 (Marshall, R.G.) and HB 1251 (Fralin).
