Thanks to Kim Fraser, Executive Director of the Lake County ADAMHS Board, for a prompt and complete reply to our question on how their Title XX funding is used.
“Each year the Lake County ADAMHS Board invests Title XX funds in behavioral health services based on demand. Those services include: community psychiatric supportive treatment, counseling, crisis services, mental health assessment, pharmacological services, peer support services and employment services. These funds are contracted through Beacon Health/Crossroads and Signature Health. For the last 3 federal fiscal years we have received/served:
FY2017 $121,197 302 children 107 adults
FY2018 $120,557 391 children 1705 adults
As you can see, the Title XX dollars enable us to provide essential mental health services to individuals in need.”
