Maryland honored the late son of Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) on Tuesday by enacting a law that allows people with mental health concerns to opt in to wellness checks, one of dozens of bills during the General Assembly’s just-concluded 90-day session. The Thomas Bloom Raskin Act expands access to the state’s 211 system, allowing people in mental distress to request periodic phone calls from a team staffing a crisis hotline.
