State Operated Psychiatric Facilities Funded
The General Assembly has passed the supplemental funding bill, SB 2412, which will keep the state operated facilities open through this fiscal year ( June 30, 2012). The supplemental bill also provided an additional $30 million for community mental health services.
ICEP will continue to work with our lobbyists to find a long term solution to the state psychiatric facility funding issue.
Special thanks are owed to the 150+ ICEP members who contacted their state representatives and senators, and the goveor, urging them to keep the facilities open.
