From the Purpose and Summary: "The purpose of H.R. 5407, the bipartisan 'Enhancing Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Through Campus Planning Act,' is to encourage institutions of higher education (IHEs) to develop a comprehensive mental health and suicide prevention plan to better support college students. H.R. 5407 directs the Secretary of Education (Secretary), in coordination with the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), to make efforts to encourage IHEs to develop and implement comprehensive campus mental health and suicide prevention plans. These plans must align with approaches recommended by the Suicide Prevention Resource Center, programs authorized under section 9032 of the '21st Century Cures Act,' programs authorized under the 'Garrett Lee Smith Memorial Act,' and other existing federal and state efforts to address mental health. The legislation also requires the Secretary to report to the House Committee on Education and Labor and the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions on the efforts carried out under the bill."
