The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently announced that $195 million in new federal funding is available for health centers to increase access to mental-health and substance-abuse services.
The new funding is part of the Access Increases for Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (AIMS) program.
Additionally, the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy has announced that $3 million will be available for rural communities wishing to expand opioid-related health-care services.
Applications for this program can be found due by July 21.
“Colorado’s health-care providers are some of the most dedicated in the country, and additional resources will further support their efforts to fight opioid abuse and address mental illness in our communities.”

Ravens’ Darren Waller to miss at least a year for violating substance abuse policy
Ravens tight end Darren Waller will miss all of the 2017 season (and potentially more time), due to violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy for the second time.
It’s another blow to a tight end group that already released Dennis Pitta to a dislocated hip earlier in the offseason.
The details of the suspension have not been released, but Waller has been candid about marijuana use in the past.
Waller may become too much of a liability for the Ravens to keep on, with only 12 catches in his two years with the Ravens, particularly at a position with the depth that tight end has for them.
“There were other personal issues, and [marijuana] was the one thing I always turned to,” Waller said back in October.
