Center to Receive $560k to expand Telehealth Services for underserved populations

The NH Delegation recently announced that The Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester will be the recipient of a $560,000 grant to expand telehealth services for low-income populations and veterans in the Granite State.  Specifically, the funding was allocated through the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Connected Care Pilot Program that NH Representatives and Senators worked on as part of the December COVID-19 relief and government funding bill.

This federal funding enhances The Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester’s ability, to offer connected-care services like telehealth, to underserved communities, by offering remote mental health and substance use disorder treatments for veterans and low-income individuals, which make up more than half of The Mental Health Center’s 11,000 patients served annually.
