Thanks to our friends at the National Association of State Mental Health Directors (NASHMPD) for this important clarification on state funding for children's mental health services of a states total mental health budget. In our original email to our membership discussing the proposed 2013 SAMHSA budget we stated that an average of 10% state funding goes to children's mental health services. Data from the NASHMPD Research Institute, Inc. shows a higher figure of 22%. We appreciate the clarification!
