HHS Awards $26.2 Million in Grants to Expand Primary Care Services for Individuals with Behavioral Health Disorders: On September 24, HHS awarded $26.2 million in grants to improve primary care services for individuals with behavioral health disorders. To integrate primary care intobehavioral health services, HHS awarded four-year grants of up to $2 million to 43 community behavioral health agencies. The remaining $5.3 million went to the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare (NCCBH) to establish a national resource center to foster the integration of primary and behavioral health care services at the community level. Financed jointly by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the U.S. Health Resources Services Administration, the center will offer training and technical assistance to community-based behavioral health programs and develop models of integrated care.
