H.P. 1542

 

JOINT RESOLUTION RECOGNIZING

MAY 2022 AS MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH

 

            WHEREAS, the mental health and well-being of all children, youth, adults and families in the State are of fundamental importance to the Legislature; and

 

            WHEREAS, since 1999, the national suicide rate has increased more than 30%, with more than 10 million individuals experiencing suicidal thoughts and 1.4 million individuals attempting suicide annually in the United States; and

 

            WHEREAS, approximately 129 individuals die by suicide in the United States each day; and

 

            WHEREAS, suicide, opioid misuse and addiction and children's mental health issues are areas of concern in the State; and

 

            WHEREAS, there are approximately 65,000 adults in the State who are living with a serious mental illness, including, but not limited to, bipolar disorder, severe depression and schizophrenia, and 27.2% of the children in the State have a mental illness, the highest rate of any state in the nation; and

 

            WHEREAS, the effective treatment of mental health conditions is critical to reducing the number of individuals and families who find themselves in mental health crises, to breaking individual and generational cycles of mental illness and to promoting healing; and

 

            WHEREAS, recovery from a mental illness requires access to professional services and involves families and caregivers as allies in recovery and as critical members of the care delivery team; and

 

            WHEREAS, maintaining an open dialogue regarding mental health conditions encourages individuals struggling with mental illness to seek help and is an essential component to fighting the stigma associated with mental illness; now, therefore, be it

 

            RESOLVED: That We, the Members of the One Hundred and Thirtieth Legislature now assembled in the Second Regular Session, on behalf of the people we represent, take this opportunity to recognize May 2022 as Mental Health Awareness Month in order to raise awareness of mental health conditions and services and to break the stigma surrounding mental illness in the State.

JOINT RESOLUTION RECOGNIZING MAY 5, 2022 AS

MISSING AND MURDERED INDIGENOUS PERSONS AWARENESS DAY

 

            WHEREAS, there are thousands of unsolved cases of missing and murdered Native Americans, including high case rates involving women and girls, including transgender women and girls; and

 

            WHEREAS, the number of these cases is disproportionately high compared to cases among the population of the United States as a whole; and

 

            WHEREAS, failure to demonstrate the necessary commitment to addressing and preventing this ongoing tragedy fails to honor the dignity and humanity of each person who goes missing or is murdered; and

 

            WHEREAS, it is necessary to work with tribal nations to increase coordination among state and tribal entities to investigate and resolve these cases and ensure accountability; and

 

            WHEREAS, it is also necessary to address the underlying causes of these cases, including sexual violence, human trafficking, domestic violence, violent crime, systemic racism, economic disparities and substance use and addiction, as well as to put in place a support system to bridge the gap for families in crisis and provide opportunities for healing through community-driven approaches; and

 

            WHEREAS, the challenges in tribal communities are best met by solutions that are informed and shaped by tribal leaders and tribal governments; and

 

            WHEREAS, an effective community response plan requires critical partnerships within and timely response from the community, tribal law enforcement and local, state and federal law enforcement; now, therefore, be it

 

            RESOLVED: That We, the Members of the One Hundred and Thirtieth Legislature now assembled in the Second Regular Session, on behalf of the people we represent, take this opportunity to recognize May 5, 2022 as Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons Awareness Day in order to remember the indigenous people we have lost and commit to working to ensure that any incident of a missing or murdered person is met with swift and effective action.

HLS 844

 

 

WHEREAS, the Legislature has learned with deep regret of the death of:

 

(1-3)  the Honorable James Gilchrest Skoglund, of St. George.  Mr. Skoglund had a long and distinguished teaching career in the Whitefield school system, later teaching junior high courses in the Thomaston Academy Building until his retirement in 1996.  He served in the Maine House of Representatives from the 114th to the 116th and from the 118th to the 120th Legislatures.  He was a deacon of the First Baptist Church at Wiley's Corner in St. George and an active and longtime member of the St. George Grange.  He was also a custodian of the records of the North Parish Association and served many years as the sexton, caring for two cemeteries.  An authority on the history of St. George and the surrounding towns, he was one of the principal architects and founders of the St. George Historical Society.  One of his many accomplishments was to help to forge an agreement to renovate the Marshall Point Lighthouse, making it the showplace it is today.  Mr. Skoglund will be long remembered and sadly missed by his family and friends and all those whose lives he touched;

Come from the House READ and ADOPTED.
