Dear ADD YOUR SENATOR,
I am writing in support of House Bill 492 introduced by Representatative Mike Loychik, the Mental Health Education for Coaches Bill. As a resident of ADD YOUR CITY and one of your constituents I am asking for your consideration and a vote in support of HB 492 that will add a student mental health training course for all coaches.
I’d like to share our family’s story with you so that you understand why passage of this legislation is so important to us. Add personal story.
Ohio has an opportunity to take a lead in advocating for all student athletes and recognizing the importance of their mental health. Knowledge is power and empowering all of our coaches with training to recognize our students that may be struggling benefits everyone. Help us open dialogues, let’s be able to talk!
Thank you for your time and consideration.
