Attorney General Reyes spoke on topics including suicide, addiction, and bullying. In addition, he discussed SafeUT, a free app available to students and parents that provides 24/7 access to licensed clinicians; the designation of 988 as the new national suicide hotline number, with the implementation to be finalized by July 16, 2022; and the new Safety Pledge initiative by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the White House, which promotes awareness and education of online safety to protect children from exploitation and trafficking.
