Sen. Suzio: “Some legislative response is warranted.”

September 26, 2018

Following the suicide of a pregnant teen and seven other suicide attempts at a state Department of Children and Families psychiatric facility, Child Advocate Sarah Eagan asked state lawmakers to require all state-run treatment programs for children to be licensed and subject to routine inspections.

Sen. Len Suzio, R-Meriden, said he hopes this will lead to legislative action next year because “it’s very apparent from the Child Advocate’s report that some legislative response is warranted.”
