     activities involving statewide youth suicide early 
     intervention and prevention strategies, to provide funds for 
     campus mental and behavioral health service centers.

  There being no objection, the Senate proceeded to consider the bill.
  Mr. FRIST. Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that the bill be

  The bill (S. 2634) was read the third time and passed, as follows:

                                S. 2634

       Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of 
     the United States of America in Congress assembled,

     SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

       This Act may be cited as the ``Garrett Lee Smith Memorial 
     Act''.

     SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

       Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) More children and young adults die from suicide each 
     year than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, 
     stroke, and chronic lung disease combined.
       (2) Over 4,000 children and young adults tragically take 
     their lives every year, making suicide the third overall 
     cause of death between the ages of 10 and 24. According to 
     the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suicide is the 
     third overall cause of death among college-age students.
       (3) According to the National Center for Injury Prevention 
     and Control of the Centers for Disease Control and 
     Prevention, children and young adults accounted for 15 
     percent of all suicides completed in 2000.
       (4) From 1952 to 1995, the rate of suicide in children and 
     young adults has tripled.
       (5) From 1980 to 1997, the rate of suicide among young 
     adults ages 15 to 19 increased 11 percent.
       (6) From 1980 to 1997, the rate of suicide among children 
     ages 10 to 14 increased 109 percent.
       (7) According to the National Center of Health Statistics, 
     suicide rates among Native Americans range from 1.5 to 3 
     times the national average for other groups, with young 
     people ages 15 to 34 making up 64 percent of all suicides.
       (8) Congress has recognized that youth suicide is a public 
     health tragedy linked to underlying mental health problems 
     and that youth suicide early intervention and prevention 
     activities are national priorities.
       (9) Youth suicide early intervention and prevention have 
     been listed as urgent public health priorities by the 
     President's New Freedom Commission in Mental Health (2002), 
     the Institute of Medicine's Reducing Suicide: A National 
     Imperative (2002), the National Strategy for Suicide 
     Prevention: Goals and Objectives for Action (2001), and the 
     Surgeon General's Call to Action To Prevent Suicide (1999).
       (10) Many States have already developed comprehensive 
     Statewide youth suicide early intervention and prevention 
     strategies that seek to provide effective early intervention 
     and prevention services.
       (11) In a recent report, a startling 85 percent of college 
     counseling centers revealed an increase in the number of 
     students they see with psychological problems. Furthermore, 
     the American College Health Association found that 61 percent 
     of college students reported feeling hopeless, 45 percent 
     said they felt so depressed they could barely function, and 9 
     percent felt suicidal.
       (12) There is clear evidence of an increased incidence of 
     depression among college students. According to a survey 
     described in the Chronicle of Higher Education (February 1, 
     2002), depression among freshmen has nearly doubled (from 8.2 
     percent to 16.3 percent). Without treatment, researchers 
     recently noted that ``depressed adolescents are at risk for 
     school failure, social isolation, promiscuity, self 
     medication with drugs and alcohol, and suicide--now the third 
     leading cause of death among 10-24 year olds.''.
       (13) Researchers who conducted the study ``Changes in 
     Counseling Center Client Problems Across 13 Years'' (1989-
     2001) at Kansas State University stated that ``students are 
     experiencing more stress, more anxiety, more depression than 
     they were a decade ago.'' (The Chronicle of Higher Education, 
     February 14, 2003).
       (14) According to the 2001 National Household Survey on 
     Drug Abuse, 20 percent of full-time undergraduate college 
     students use illicit drugs.
       (15) The 2001 National Household Survey on Drug Abuse also 
     reported that 18.4 percent of adults aged 18 to 24 are 
     dependent on or abusing illicit drugs or alcohol. In 
     addition, the study found that ``serious mental illness is 
     highly correlated with substance dependence or abuse. Among 
     adults with serious mental illness in 2001, 20.3 percent were 
     dependent on or abused alcohol or illicit drugs, while the 
     rate among adults without serious mental illness was only 6.3 
     percent.''.
       (16) A 2003 Gallagher's Survey of Counseling Center 
     Directors found that 81 percent were concerned about the 
     increasing number of students with more serious psychological 
     problems, 67 percent reported a need for more psychiatric 
     services, and 63 percent reported problems with growing 
     demand for services without an appropriate increase in 
     resources.
       (17) The International Association of Counseling Services 
     accreditation standards recommend 1 counselor per 1,000 to 
     1,500 students. According to the 2003 Gallagher's Survey of 
     Counseling Center Directors, the ratio of counselors to 
     students is as high as 1 counselor per 2,400 students at 
     institutions of higher education with more than 15,000 
     students.
