Your advocacy matters! 

Thanks to your support, the MA Senate approved key mental health budget priorities, including:

  • Adding $1 million to the Department of Mental Health (DMH) Rental Subsidy Program. If adopted in conference committee, this funding will help about 80 DMH clients who are homeless, unstably housed, or stuck in inpatient settings to find secure, stable, affordable housing. 
  • Increasing funding for Elder Mental Health Outreach Teams (EMHOTs) to $800,000 for FY2020.
