H.R. 1109, also known as the Mental Health Services for Students Act, authored by Congresswoman Grace F. Napolitano and coauthored by Rep. John Katko (R-NY-24), recently passed the U.S. House of Representatives.

The bill creates a total of $130 million in grant funding for schools across the country to partner with local mental health professionals to establish comprehensive mental health services for students.
