Noblesville-based Aspire Indiana Health has been awarded a $4 million federal grant to support mental health and substance use treatment services. Aspire says the two-year Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration grant will enable it to adopt the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic model for care delivery.
With the funding, Aspire says it can expand services to serve as a “one-stop shop” for mental health, substance use treatment and other healthcare services in the communities it serves.
“This grant award is a huge win for the communities served by Aspire Indiana Health,” said Barbara Scott, Aspire president. “We will use these federal dollars to upgrade our capacity to respond to the booming need for mental health, addiction treatment and support services, particularly in our underserved communities.”
Aspire says the CCBHC model ensures access to crisis care, care coordination with hospitals, law enforcement and schools as well as access to services including medication-assisted treatment to help stop the overdose crisis.
Aspire is credentialed by the state of Indiana as a designated Community Mental Health Center in Boone, Hamilton, Madison and Marion counties.
