INDIANAPOLIS – Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch will testify on Senate Bill 1 this week.

Crouch will go before the Senate Appropriations Committee on Thursday in support of Senate Bill 1.

The legislation, authored by Sen. Michael Crider (R-Greenfield), would transform the 988 Crisis Hotline into the 988 Crisis Response Centers and address funding and sustainability plans for Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics.

There are currently 19 pilot CCBHC sites in Indiana.

Senate Bill 1 would require the division of mental health and addiction to establish and maintain a help line to provide confidential emotional support and referrals to certain resources to individuals who call the toll free telephone number.

988 will not replace the National Suicide Prevention Line or 211, rather it will be an easier way for Hoosiers to access a strengthened and expanded network of crisis call centers.
