H.R. 5407 would direct the Secretary of Education to encourage institutions of higher education to develop and implement comprehensive mental health and suicide prevention plans based on established programs. The bill also would require the Secretary to report to the Congress on activities carried out under this bill.
Using information about the cost of similar reports, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 5407 would cost less than $500,000 over the 2022-2027 period. Such spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds.
