Egyptian Health Dept, Clay County Hospital Among Grantees for Mental Health Services

Two regional organizations have secured significant funding aimed at helping strengthen mental health services for youth.  The governor’s office and the Illinois Department of Public Health announced the awards Tuesday.  Egyptian Health Department will receive nearly $225,000 while the Clay County Hospital will get more than $180,000.  The money has been awarded to help agencies improve student care through workforce enhancements, developing frameworks to prevent adverse childhood experiences, interventions to assist children suffering from traumas, and training for medical and school staff to expand adolescent mental health resources.  Just under $9.5 million in total was awarded to 40 applicants across the state.
