A Washington Youth Suicide Review Team is one step closer to reality after legislators passed substitute HB 1354 out of committee in a 11-2 vote.
Rep. Gina Mosbrucker, D-Goldendale, the prime sponsor of the bill, saw the bill introduced into committee Feb. 1.
Rep. Mosbrucker’s bill would establish the WYSRT to review the circumstances related to suicides occurring among youth up to age 24.
The team would review medical records, conduct voluntary home interviews with parents and utilize other strategies to discover if any common factors exist among young people who commit suicide.
