Latest COVID-19 Relief Package Makes an Investment in Needed Mental Health Services


ARLINGTON, Va., March 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today the National Alliance on Mental Illness' (NAMI) CEO Daniel H. Gillison, Jr. released the following statement after final congressional passage today of the latest COVID-19 Relief package including the American Rescue Plan Act. The bill now heads to President Joe Biden's desk for signature.

"It's been nearly one year since the World Health Organization called the coronavirus a global pandemic.  It has been a year of great suffering, and the state of our nation's mental health reflects that. There is much work to be done to heal our country; work that will continue long after lockdowns are over, and masks tucked away. Trauma can have long-term negative effects on mental health.

"The time is now to make real investments in mental health services, and our country is finally stepping up to the challenge in this COVID-19 relief package.  NAMI is grateful for the leadership of the President and leaders in Congress for making these critical investments to improve the lives of people living with mental illness."
