HHS awards hundreds of millions to expand mental health care services – California Medical Association

Over the past few months, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has announced hundreds of millions in funding to support and expand mental health services across the country to help address the country’s mental health crisis.
“The California Medical Association (CMA) is thankful for the Biden Administration’s commitment to addressing our chronically underfunded mental health care system,” said CMA President Donaldo Hernandez M.D. “I applaud the tireless efforts of mental health professionals, including our psychiatrists who have worked hard to fill in gaps that chronic underfunding has created, but it is time to finally give our mental health care system the attention it deserves for the sake of the millions of Americans who are suffering with mental illness.”
The new mental health funding includes:
Over the past five years, California has also committed to investing billions of new dollars to improve mental health services across all delivery systems.
Mental health is one of CMA’s top  priorities, and was declared one of the major issues discussed at the association’s 2022 House of Delegates. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic shined a light on our nation’s mental health crisis, CMA has long advocated for additional funding and support for behavioral health services, including screening, prevention and treatment.
