(This amendment provides $14 million GF each year to prevent individuals with serious mental illness, mental retardation and/or substance use disorders from having serious crises and to provide greater stabilization and support in the community after an emergency. Intensive and ongoing support services are an essential component along the spectrum of care for individuals with mental illness. Services will include medications, local inpatient acute care services and residential arrangements. These services help to avoid crises and unnecessary trauma caused by facility placement, incarceration, and the disruption of home life and employment.)
