This program will provide additional funding to expand mental health and grief counseling services for survivors and families who have suffered devastating loss from COVID.

Behavioral Health is the integration of mental health and substance use services.

Awareness: Only 11 percent of Americans with a substance use disorder and 40 percent of those with a mental illness receive treatment for their condition. Many individuals go without treatment in part because their disorders go undiagnosed. Regular screenings in primary care and other health care settings enable earlier identification of mental health and substance use disorders. Earlier diagnosis leads to earlier care. More information: Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) (2014): Substance Use and Mental Health Estimates from the 2013 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: Overview of Findings.
