May is Mental Health Awareness Month
Did you know that federal funding for mental health programs is based on Census data? While you may not realize it, the 2020 Census is important for health care and affects you and your family’s health. Results from Census data help determine funding for some of the largest health care programs and services including block grants for community mental health services. Healthcare affects us all. The Census allocates federal funds towards mental health resources in the community, school districts and public safety. In 2017, the federal government distributed over $700 million for mental healthcare programs. Your complete Census count can ensure that Georgia receives its fair share of this funding in the future.
