Under the new law, victims will have access to free mental health care after they report
an assault on campus. Schools will now offer annual prevention and awareness
programs for all students, first responders, police and employees with a focus on
bystander training. Additional requirements include providing a clear document with
information regarding a victim’s rights to press charges, entering into relationships with
off-campus shelters and agencies that support victims of domestic violence and sexual
assault and submitting an annual report to the state.
