Ann Marie's Law

Suicide and Depression Awareness and Prevention Policy

105 ILCS 5/2-3.163, amended by P.A. 99-443 requires a suicide awareness and prevention policy. This law requires ISBE to create a working group to develop a model policy. The working group has determined that IASB’s PRESS policy 7:290, Suicide and Depression Awareness and Prevention will be the model policy, and any school district who requests a copy will receive it gratis. The ISBE working group will use PRESS policy 7:290, Suicide and Depression Awareness and Prevention to develop guidelines for implementing the policy, along with resources and other materials to assist school districts with the implementation of the policy. For legal advice or a legal opinion on a specific question about this law and the policy, consult a lawyer.

To request a copy of the model youth suicide awareness and prevention policy, email lbremer@iasb.com with the subject line: Suicide Awareness & Prevention Policy Request

For policy-specific questions, please contact Brian Zumpf, IASB Policy Consultant at bzumpf@iasb.com.

IASB wishes to thank and acknowledge the IASB PRESS Advisory Board who reviewed the PRESS sample policy.
