SB 1342 Higher education; mental health treatment coordination for certain students.
SUMMARY AS PASSED: (all summaries)
Higher education; mental health treatment coordination. Provides that the governing board of each public four-year institution of higher education may establish written memoranda of understanding with its local community services board or behavioral health authority and with local hospitals and other local mental health facilities in order to expand the scope of services available to students seeking treatment. The bill requires each memorandum to designate a contact person to be notified when a student is involuntarily committed or when a student is discharged from a facility and consents to such notification. The bill also requires each memorandum to include the institution in the post-discharge planning of a student who has been committed and intends to return to campus, to the extent allowable under state and federal privacy laws. This bill is identical to HB 1609.
