Page 330, after line 3, insert:
"R.  Out of this appropriation, $3,850,000 the second year from the general fund shall be provided to establish seven
crisis intervention and stabilization units.  Four units will be located in the following areas:  Northern Virginia, the Shenandoah Valley, the Upper Peninsula of Hampton Roads and the Tidewater area.  The location of the remaining three units shall be designated by the Commissioner  based on the need for services, regional plans submitted by the regional planning teams, and the availability of private inpatient hospital bed purchase funding."

(This amendment adds $2.8 million from the general fund in the second year for five additional community crisis stabilization units to provide acute and intensive services. The introduced budget included $1.1 million for two units. 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 $3,850,000 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.)
