WINDHAM, Conn. (WTNH) — Several lawmakers from Connecticut have announced the approval of federal funding to help mental health services in the state.

Congressman Joe Courtney, senators Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy said a $10 million dollar low interest federal loan was approved.

The money is going to help United Social & Mental Health Services to expand mental and primary health services for adults and children in the Windham region.

The money, specifically, will be used to build a new 28,000 square foot behavioral health center.

“Accessible and quality mental health services are some of the most urgent needs in the Windham area, and this new facility will ensure that the people of this region have the support and care they need,” Congressman Courtney said.
