Bill 6532 addressing mental health and housing needs could be fine-tuned

The recent introduction of CT HB 6532 in February 2021: An Act Appropriating State Funds for Mental Health Services and Housing  is greatly appreciated by nurses advocating for better mental services for patients. The bill will allot funds to address the expansion of residential services for young adults, hire additional housing coordinators, and expand respite services, along with other short-term stabilization of patients with mental health issues.
