WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) today joined the Baltimore Congressional Delegation in announcing $4 million in federal funding for Mosaic Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs) in Baltimore City and Timonium. The funding will help the Sheppard Pratt-operated clinics expand access to lifesaving mental health services and substance abuse treatment.

“Far too many Americans are experiencing mental health and substance abuse challenges, especially amid the COVID-19 crisis,” the lawmakers said. “Many who seek treatment face delays or get incomplete, uncoordinated care without the full range of support they need. This new, federal funding will help ensure that more Marylanders receive the timely and comprehensive care they need.”

Mosaic Community Services is the largest nonprofit provider of community-based mental health and addiction services in Central Maryland. It serves nearly 30,000 children, adolescents, adults and families across the region and employs 1,000 people.
