"R.  Out of this appropriation, $4,870,000 the second year from the general fund shall be provided to establish six new and expanded crisis intervention, stabilization and acute care services units in the following areas:  Northern Virginia, the Roanoke Valley, the Shenandoah Valley, Southside Virginia, the Upper Peninsula of Hampton Roads and South Hampton Roads."

(This amendment adds $2.9 million from the general fund in the second year for four additional community crisis stabilization units to provide acute and intensive services. Crisis stabilization services have proven effective in assisting consumers in crisis and providing needed stabilization and treatment, averting more costly hospital placements. This amendment earmarks a total of $4,870,000 for crisis stabilization services, accounting for funds included in the introduced budget for this purpose. Language is added specifying the areas of the state where the units will be established -- Northern Virginia, the Shenandoah Valley, the Roanoke Valley, Southside Virginia, the Upper Peninsula of Hampton Roads, and South Hampton Roads.)
