California Gov. Gavin Newsom announces grants totaling $480.5 million for child mental health

The state of California’s behavioral health infrastructure for children and teens will be improved through 54 projects that will get awards totaling $480.5 million, according to Governor Gavin Newsom.

This investment provides grant money to build new facilities and improve current facilities that aid children, youth, transition-age youth, and young people with mental health and/or drug use disorder as part of Newsom’s Master Plan for Children’s Mental Health.

These 54 initiatives will increase care, especially in the least restrictive, community-based environment. They include community wellness/youth prevention centers, outpatient treatment for substance use disorders, school-based health centers, and outpatient community mental health clinics.

The age group between 18 and 25 in California has the highest prevalence of serious mental illness and substance use disorders, according to the governor’s press office. Juvenile suicide, emergency room visits by children and adolescents with mental health issues, and behavioral health disorders in kids and teens are all on the rise.

Moreover, to fill various holes in the infrastructure of the state’s behavioral health facilities, the Department of Health Care Services is allocating $2.1 billion over six grant rounds.

The Encampment Resolution Fund grant program’s availability of $240 million was announced by Governor Gavin Newsom. This will assist people e find houses and shelters while also cleaning up encampments.

Governor Newsom asserted that California is a pioneer in addressing homelessness. Since 2019, we’ve built over 12,000 new housing units for the homeless through HomeKey and provided shelter for more than 60,000 individuals through Project RoomKey. This is an unparalleled amount of progress. Currently, $240 million is available to clean up encampments, make our streets safer, and provide housing and shelter for those who need it.

Additionally, $150 million will be used to prioritize projects benefiting persons living in encampments on state rights-of-way, including highways, bridges, and other infrastructure.

Applications for financing can be made by governments, cities, and care continuums. According to the Office of the Governor, plans must include a detailed service delivery plan that demonstrates a clear pathway to housing for those remaining in the encampment while addressing their urgent health and safety requirements.
