Senate Bill 52 -- known as Adi's Act -- requires school districts to adopt a policy on student suicide prevention, which is essential to creating an educational enviornment centered on student safety with an emphasis on assisting students prone to a high risk of suicide. 

Every student deserves equitable and supportive services in order to feel safe when seeking help, and Adi's Act will provide every school district with a policy model that reflects national best practices. Youth -- particularly LGBTQ youth, youth with disabilities, and youth experiencing homelessness -- are deeply affected by the current lack of resources needed to support them. 

Every student in Oregon should be safe, supported, and affirmed while at school.
