Governor Inslee Releases Comprehensive Behavioral Health Plan

December 12, 2018

Yesterday, Gov. Jay Inslee released a behavioral health plan for the state. This is a preview of his investments in behavioral health that will be in his proposed 2019-2021 budget, which will be released later in the week. WSHA has been very active in advocating for increased funding for behavioral health and developed a comprehensive 10-Point Behavioral Health Plan to highlight areas of need. We are pleased the governor proposes funding for all major budget items in WSHA’s 10-point plan. This announcement is a significant turning point for behavioral health in our state, which has been underfunded for years. WSHA’s Inside Olympia newsletter contains more details from the plan.
