Feds award grants for new mental health clinics
The Hill

The Obama administration is awarding $22.9 million in new grants to states to improve mental healthcare as part of a bipartisan bill passed last year.

The planning grants give funds to 24 states to prepare applications for a two-year trial program for community mental health clinics. Eight states will be tapped in a second round beginning in 2017 to receive funding for the clinics, which will operate under new higher standards and offer services like 24-hour crisis psychiatric care.
