Newport Mental Health was the recipient of a $38,802 Foundation grant for expansion of children’s mental health care in Newport County.
This program will build on a mobile support, school-based outpatient program and will be able to assist in the treatment of over 200 school children in the first year. This model will weave together the children’s therapy, case management, and mobile crisis response components from two partner organizations into a comprehensive and unified program to reach children and parents of children with, or at risk of, serious mental illness.
According to Nate Levin-Aspenson, Leads Grants and Foundation Relations Manager, “with this expansion, at least 80% of initial mobile crisis responses will be resolved without the need for an emergency department visit or inpatient hospitalization.”
