Grants target drug, mental health aid

October 03, 2001

The state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has received federal grants totaling $250,000 to help people who are having emotional or substance abuse problems as a result of last month's terrorists attacks in New York and Washington.

A portion will support substance abuse programs in five counties - Anne Arundel, Frederick, Harford, Prince George's and St. Mary's - that have large military installations. Some will be used to identify gaps in mental health services throughout the state.

The grants are among $6.8 million earmarked for eight states and the District of Columbia.
