LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The federal government has awarded Michigan $1 million for mental health services.

Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell announced Thursday that the state will receive the Affordable Care Act funding to support four health centers. The money will be used to establish or expand behavioral health services for more than 5,000 Michigan residents.

The U.S. says that $250,000 each is going to Wayne County, Alcona Citizens for Health in Alcona County, Thunder Bay Community Health Services in Montmorency County and Trinity Health in Kent County.

The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services awarded $54.6 million to health centers for efforts such as hiring new mental health professionals, adding mental health and substance use disorder services and employing integrated models of primary care.
