LATEST SENATOR DONNELLY
Washington, D.C. – Bipartisan legislation introduced by U.S. Senators Joe Donnelly (D-IN) and Todd Young (R-IN) that would support mental health services for law enforcement officers passed the United States Senate today unanimously. The Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act would help law enforcement agencies establish or enhance mental health care services for their officers. The bill must now pass the U.S. House of Representatives before it can go to the President’s desk to be signed into law.
Donnelly said, “Passage of this bipartisan legislation is a major step toward supporting the mental health of our law enforcement officers, who put their lives on the line every day to protect communities and families in Indiana and across the country. I am hopeful that the House of Representatives will quickly consider and pass this legislation, so that it becomes law and we can better support the mental health and wellness needs of our law enforcement officers.”
