  • New York Governor Kathy Hochul revealed a $1 billion, multiple-year mental health investment plan. The plan would increase inpatient psychiatric treatment capacity by 1,000 beds, make a capital investment to fund 3,500 new residential units for New Yorkers living with mental illness, and increase insurance coverage. The plan would also expand outpatient services by adding 12 comprehensive psychiatric emergency programs throughout the state and 26 Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics for walk-in behavioral health care (including SUD treatment), among other services.
