Governor Announces Federal Money For Mental Health

Governor Abbott announced Wednesday that the Texas Health and Human Services Commission is receiving more than $210 million in federal emergency grants to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. $135.6 million is for substance use prevention and substance use disorder treatment and recovery support. The remaining $74.5 million is for community mental health services. Some funding will allow mental health professionals to respond with law enforcement when someone needs mental health or substance use disorder treatment instead of jail or an emergency room.
