“The Ben Morrison Fund is a mental health awareness non-profit that helps remove stigma and awareness barriers that keep suffering individuals from receiving the care and support they need,” said Schmidt. “I believe these license plates will save lives.”

The Ben Morrison Memorial Fund has supported over forty events to raise awareness about mental health struggles, break down stigma, and provide life-saving education resources to kids in the Cincinnati and Columbus area.

House Bill 222 will now head to the House floor for a vote. 

State Representative Jean Schmidt is currently serving her second term as State Representative for the 62nd Ohio House District, which encompasses the northwestern portion of Clermont County.
