Funding for Mental Health and Substance Use Services at a Crossroads (With funding levels at historical lows the future is more uncertain than ever)

(Dixon, IL) Funding levels for treatment of mental illness, addiction, and substance use, and other behavioral healthcare services are at historically low levels. Now, with a new governor in Springfield who has indicated cuts are on the horizon, the future is more uncertain than ever for human services agencies like Sinnissippi Centers.

“We are very fortunate that there are so many individuals and communities that care deeply about their most vulnerable citizens,” says Sinnissippi Centers’ President/CEO Patrick Phelan. “It is this dedication alone that has kept the behavioral health system in Illinois afloat to this point despite the many challenges and the decreasing support over the past many years.”
