LCRB Approves $1.3 Million for 2018 Children’s Mental Health Services

The Lincoln County Resource Board (LCRB) has approved more than $1.3 million in 2018 funding for local children’s mental health services.  The funding will support 12 nonprofit agencies, which provide school-based prevention and early intervention programs; crisis care; counseling; parent and home-based programs; psychiatric services; substance abuse prevention and outpatient services; therapeutic mentoring; case management; and more.

The LCRB receives funding from a voter-approved ¼ cent sales tax allocation. The 2018 funding represents an increase of more than $93,000 in program funding over 2017 and adds two nonprofit agencies to its system of care: Youth In Need and Arise Equine Therapy Foundation.
