(This amendment restores funding and positions to continue operating the Adolescent Unit at the Southwestern Virginia Mental Health Institute (SWVMHI) in Marion, which was slated for closure in the introduced budget. Language is also eliminated that would have transferred $2.1 million the second year from the general fund from the Commonwealth Center For Children and Adolescents (CCCA) to the community to provide inpatient mental health services for indigent children previously served by the CCCA and the Adolescent Unit at SWVMHI. Companion amendments in items 315 and 322 remove the funding in the central office for the community care of CCCA and Adolescent Unit patients and modify language to effect these changes. It is the intent of the General Assembly that the restoration of this funding shall be properly accounted for in calculating the revised amount of savings from executive management actions contained in item 322.05 and § 4-1.08 during the enrollment of House Bill 1600/Senate Bill 850, as adopted by the 2009 General Assembly.)
