Under the Dome

Mental healthcare rally next week

Mental healthcare advocates are holding another rally at the Legislative Building over the budget. NAMI North Carolina is sponsoring the Tuesday, June 25 gathering.

The group is opposing a Senate budget provision that would require doctors receive authorization before prescribing anti-psychotic drugs to Medicaid patients. They support money for statewide aid to group home. The House budget includes $8 million for group homes, but includes eligibility restrictions NAMI North Carolina does not like.

A May rally by mental healthcare advocates protested the Senate budget.

House and Senate negotiators are beginning to work on a compromise budget that will pass both chambers.
