"Catawba Regional Partnership            $0                  $150,000".

(This amendment provides $150,000 from the general fund the second year for the Catawba Regional Partnership. The funding will be used for two additional positions in the Child Psychiatry Training Program at the Virginia Tech Carillion School of Medicine as child psychiatry is an essential component of a comprehensive system of care for children. Early intervention in children's mental health needs is key to reducing more severe and costly problems later in life. The medical school works collaboratively with the region's Community Services Boards and other mental health providers in addressing area mental health needs. Without additional funding, the medical school can only continue to offer the current two training slots.)
