School Safety Law Toolkit

Senate Bill 133

SB 133 expanded the types of employees eligible to receive mental health first aid training and related grants to include school district employees and school resource officers, rather than just educators. The bill also repealed Health and Safety Code, sec. 1001.203(b), which limits the funding the department may give to a local mental health authority providing this training to educators.

THSC 1001.2031 Supplemental grants for training certain educators in mental health first aid.
