Sen. Paul Feeney presented with Community Pillar Award

State Sen. Paul Feeney (D-Foxboro), has received the Community Pillar Award from Massachusetts Partnerships for Youth, Inc. (MPY) at their hybrid conference on violence risk assessment and diversity considerations for working with youth.

This award is in recognition of Feeney’s commitment to empowering education and law enforcement professionals to protect the health and safety of students, in particular with his work on suicide prevention in the commonwealth.

“At Massachusetts Partnerships for Youth, Inc. we are very committed to our mission – prevention and intervention in matters of health and safety for youth,” said Margie Daniels, Executive Director of MPY. Through his work in the field of suicide prevention, it is clear that Senator Feeney shares in our mission, and we applaud him for his leadership on behalf of the citizens of the Commonwealth.”

Feeney is the author of legislation he filed to prevent suicide deaths by addressing the disturbing trend of suicide deaths at parking garages. The bill requires parking garages and public transportation facilities to place signs with information on suicide prevention, including the 988 behavioral health emergency line and the words “You Are Not Alone” in garages over three stories high in Massachusetts.

“It is an honor to receive the Community Pillar Award from the Massachusetts Partnership for Youth, Inc., an organization committed to leading the way in promoting mental and behavioral health in schools and other entities across the commonwealth,” said Feeney. “I am blessed to have the opportunity to support the work of MPY and grateful to Executive Director Margie Daniels, MPY staff, directors, officers and members for their work in increasing the health, safety, and wellbeing of students throughout the commonwealth.”
