MC3 team members and champions participated in a press conference, round table discussion, and tour of a Sparrow pediatrics clinic in Lansing on Monday, September 25 with Senator Debbie Stabenow, MDHHS Director Elizabeth Hertel, and HRSA Administrator Carole Johnson. HRSA and Sen. Stabenow’s office hosted the event to announce the $55 million in grants to improve youth mental health care access that the agency is distributing nationally.
MC3 is one of three programs in Michigan that will be receiving part of this funding. The grant will enable MC3 to further expand its model (no-cost psychiatry consultations, resources, and education) to support school mental health professionals in Michigan and to pilot the model in the emergency department setting.
