(Learfield) U.S. Senator Tina Smith says she experienced depression twice in her life, once as a teenager and again in her late-30s.
The Minnesota Democrat is proposing one-billion dollars in funding for grants over a five-year period for mental health programs.
The money would go to local school districts which partner with treatment organizations. The bill lacks a Republican co-sponsor, so its chances are uncertain.
