Improving Mental Health Access for Students Act

This bill requires institutions of higher education (IHEs) that participate in federal student aid programs to share contact information for suicide prevention resources with students.

If IHEs distribute student identification cards, then they must include on the cards phone numbers for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, the Crisis Text Line, and a campus mental-health center or program.

If IHEs do not create such cards, then they must publish the numbers on the their websites.
