Termination of Funding Means Loss of Medication Services for Approximately 500

(Dixon, IL) The state budget crisis is affecting real people in real ways. For example, as a direct result of the loss of state funding to support psychiatric services, Sinnissippi Centers will no longer be able to provide mental health medications to a significant portion of those in need, perhaps as many as 500.

A grant that allowed community behavioral health agencies to provide psychiatric services to individuals with mental illness was not included in state appropriations for the current fiscal year (FY16).  For Sinnissippi Centers, this meant a loss of over $350,000 in funds that supported a service that already cost more to provide than the funds awarded.
