Written by:

at March 31, 2014

“The legislation would ‘establish criteria for certified community behavioral health clinics to ensure the providers cover a broad range of mental health services — including 24-hour crisis care, increased integration of physical, mental, and substance abuse treatment so they are treated simultaneously rather than separately, and expanded support for families of people living with mental health issues,’ according to a press release from Sen. Debbie Stabenow’s (D-MI) office.
