Stabenow calls for improved mental health funding

WASHINGTON (WKZO) -- US Senator Debbie Stabenow is working on legislation that would boost mental health funding in Michigan. She says that public support for mental health services continues to be insufficient, even though treatments have rapidly improved.

Stabenow says that recent mass shootings point to the importance of mental health funding, and that's why a broad coalition of lawmakers are behind legislation to provide similar funding to community mental health centers as community medical health centers.

She also thinks that those identified by a court as mentally ill or dangerous should not be allowed to purchase firearms.
