    a new funding source for clients of public mental health services?

    I was at a NAMI meeting last night and one of the attendees mentioned that her sister had applied to a newly created fund that will help the mentally ill and/or their families afford necessities. Supposedly, the fund will award individuals as much as $5000 which they can use to purchase anything from eyeglasses, to dental work, to an automobile.

    Nope, haven't heard. Wonder if it's based on the state you live in?

    The story I was told is that it is nationwide and was established through a recent grant from someone's estate.

    To me, it sounds a bit too good to be true.

    If it's an actual grant, then it COULD be true. I would just be sure to do research on it. I can see that happening though...someone who has dealt with this and knows what is and isn't out there for people...it could happen.
