WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) announced today 31 Health and Human Services grants totaling $5.1 million for communities across Louisiana.

These grants will help fund Louisiana health centers that provide integrated behavioral health services such as prevention or treatment for mental health conditions and opioid addictions.

“Mental health is a growing concern across the country.  It affects the young and old, rich and poor, and if left untreated, it can ruin lives and devastate families,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “These grants will equip health centers across Louisiana to provide life-saving mental health services.”
