Mental health grants from ACA target NH
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently announced that 221 health centers throughout the nation are each receiving a portion of $54.6 million in Affordable Care Act dollars.
“Integrating medical and behavioral services reduces the stigma of receiving care for a mental illness, improves access to services and improves the efficiency of the care as it enables all providers and patients to work together as a team,” Furlong said in a statement.
“This will be used to help expand our mental health service offerings so that we can hire more licensed professionals and train primary care physicians,” echoed Donna Collins of Harbor Homes. “We are so thrilled.”
The new, 15,000-square-foot clinic at 45 High St. will feature 14 primary care examination rooms, two nursing stations, a pharmacy, cafeteria, eye care area, showers and dental laboratory, along with a recuperative care center to help those who need a place to stay after medical procedures, illnesses or surgeries.
