HCS Adds Hotlines to Back of Student ID for 2022-23 School Year

Horry County Schools are making changes to their Student ID’s after Governor McMaster signed a bill into law called ‘The Student Identification Card Suicide Prevention Act’. The law requires schools in the state to list the National Suicide Hotline number along with one other crisis resource of the district’s choice on a Student’s ID card. Horry County is going above and beyond and will have contact information for the National Suicide Hotline, 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline, the Department of Mental Health Mobile Crisis Number and the National Teen Dating Abuse Hotline.
