Historic day in Olympia

Today, Governor Inslee signed ESHB 2315 into law, making Washington the first state in the country to require suicide prevention training for doctors and nurses. HSPA members Beau, Collin, and Juliana helped to advocate for this bill last month, and all of us at HSPA are so grateful to Forefront for organizing these phenomenal, historic efforts.
