LCRB Approves $1.3 Million for 2019 Children’s Mental Health Services

The Lincoln County Resource Board (LCRB) has approved more than $1.3 million in 2019 funding for local children’s mental health services.  The funding will support 12 nonprofit agencies and 19 programs, which provide: school-based prevention and early intervention services; crisis care; counseling; parent-support and home-based programs; psychiatric services; substance use disorder prevention and outpatient services; therapeutic mentoring; case management; and more.

Children and youth who access LCRB-funded programs report improved academic performance and school attendance; enhanced social and relational skills; healthier familial relationships; increased level of overall daily living functions; reduced law enforcement or juvenile justice involvement; no substantiated child abuse or neglect reports; and reduced symptoms associated with such disorders as anxiety, depression, disruptive behaviors, bipolar, trauma and more.
