WVU implements 'Jamie's Law' to increase suicide prevention awareness

As suicide rises to the second-leading cause of death among the 10-24 age population in West Virginia, a new state law is requiring middle schools, high schools and universities to offer suicide awareness and prevention programs to their students, faculty and staff.

Jamie’s Law – which was unanimously adopted by state legislators in March – was named for Jamie Toman, who died as a result of suicide 21 years ago in Ritchie County. 
The law mandates that University and college leaders implement policies to advise students of available programs both on and off campus regarding depression and suicide. Incoming West Virginia University students will be provided with these resources as they begin their college careers.
