Bipartisan Bill Could Provide Millions for Follow-Up Mental Health Services

Congressmen David Trone (D-MD), Jamie Raskin (D-MD), and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) reintroduced the Continuity in Necessary Evaluative Crisis Treatment (CONNECT) Act to connect individuals experiencing a behavioral or mental health crisis with follow-up services. The bill authorizes $30 million to create a new grant program through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to support these activities.
