Senator Stabenow introduced bipartisan legislation last week to renew and expand funding for community mental health and addiction services.
“About one in five people is affected by mental illness, and drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death for Americans under 50. These disorders do not discriminate. They affect each of us – our parents, our veterans, our friends, and our children,” said Senator Stabenow. “Our Excellence in Mental Health and Addiction Treatment Act is an important first step in getting more people the care they need at clinics close to home.”
