East Jordan & Alcona Health Centers Partner in Grant Focused on Improving Children's Health
Tuesday, January 12, 2016
The Charlevoix County, Otsego County and Petoskey-Harbor Springs Area community foundations have been awarded a grant of $103,500 from the Michigan Health Endowment Fund to support initiatives aimed at improving the quality of health for children in the region.
The grants will increase access to mental health services for youth by establishing five days per week of school-based mental health provider time in Charlevoix and Otsego counties and six days per week in Emmet County. Grant funding will pay for initial start-up costs until reimbursements from billable services are received.
Additional partners of this initiative include Alcona Health Center, East Jordan Family Health Center and North Country Community Mental Health.
