The Valley Journal: $10M bolsters MT mental health, substance use disorder program

Thanks to funding secured in the American Rescue Plan, Montana is set to receive $10,012,392 in community grant funding to support mental health and substance use disorder services, U.S. Senator Jon Tester announced.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is distributing $4,372,007 to Montana through the Mental Health Service Block Grant program, and $5,640,385 through the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant program.

"This critical funding will help make sure mental health and substance use disorder providers are getting the resources they need to meet the needs of Montana communities, and ensure that no Montanan slips through the crack," said Tester.

The MHBG program supports states' efforts to provide comprehensive community mental health care services and address gaps in existing treatment services for those with serious mental illness.

The SABG program supports states' efforts to evaluate and implement plans to prevent, treat, and support recovery for people suffering from substance use disorders. This funding makes additional investments in existing treatment and recovery infrastructure, and provides support for local providers to address unique on-the-ground needs of substance use disorder services.

The American Rescue Plan secured more than $1.5 billion in mental health and substance use disorder services support to address the rising behavioral health challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.
