Dear Legislator:

 I  urge you  to support full capacity grant funding for community mental health centers.

Thousands of adults and children depend on comprehensive housing, psychiatric and crisis intervention services.  For too long, our state’s most vulnerable citizens have borne the brunt of our state’s fiscal crisis: compared to other parts of the state budget, human services have been cut disproportionately for several years.

Maintaining current funding levels  will not only protect Illinois residents who depend on these services, but is in the best interest of Illinois taxpayers , who will pay  more for incarceration,  hospitalizations,  and emergency room care  if these proposed cuts are not restored.

 Thank you.
