The Senate 39-0, approved an amendment providing $200,000 for The NAN Project to provide mental health awareness and suicide prevention programming in schools and communities.
According to its website, the NAN Project is dedicated to the memory and legacy of Nancy Cavanaugh, – an inspiring, caring young woman who took her life because she could not find the services, support or hope needed to defeat the pain of anxiety, depression, and OCD
“I am deeply proud my amendment supporting The NAN Project was adopted so this crucial organization can continue its important work amplifying the mental health needs of students across our commonwealth,” said sponsor Sen. Joan Lovely (D-Salem).
(A “Yes” vote is for the $200,000.)
