WASHINGTON – The Department of Health and Human Services has appropriated $2 million for Access: Supports for Living, Inc. in Orange County to help promote the treatment of mental and behavioral health for 12,000 people in the Hudson Valley. 
Access: Supports for Living is in the process of being achieving certification as a community behavioral health clinic, an organization designed to streamline and improve the way that states deliver behavioral health services for Medicaid beneficiaries.
 “The integrated model, which includes the collaborative work of providers across Orange County, will eliminate existing gaps in behavioral health care, helping fight the opioid crisis, and promote recovery and wellness for more than 12,000 people in the Hudson Valley,” said Access President Amy Anderson-Winchell.
The organization will work with other providers in the community, using the funding to directly support adults and children seeking behavioral health services in Orange County.
Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney announced the grant.
