Application was made to use funds in Mass from the Federal government for geriatric mental health services.Projects must balance the funds in community care versus institutional care.  Older Adult Behavioral Health Services would partner each ASAP and a mental health agency and require them to provide wrap around services. That would include mobile services, transportation, linguistic/translation services, elder peer counseling, legal and housing supports.

This application is making its way thru Massachusetts state government including state agencies the Governor's office, and the Legislature.
