AUGUSTA, Maine —
There is a push for more mental health service funding for children in Maine as the money for certain services runs out at the end of the month.
Advocates are seeking more than $400,000 that would go towards services for mental health providers.
Supporters of the bill said the funding is meant to keep children out of the criminal justice system and provide services for families.
Malory Shaughnessy, the Alliance’s Executive Director, was interviewed in this report.
