2008 – 2009 Executive Budget Recommendation and Enacted Budget Update

The 2008 – 2009 Executive Budget Recommendation for OMH continues to promote the mental health of all New Yorkers, with a particular focus on providing hope and recovery for adults with serious mental illness and children with serious emotional disturbances. The Executive Recommendation builds on prior year initiatives by addressing the systemic problems of difficulty in accessing services and service fragmentation. This Recommendation maintains the large array of services currently available to citizens of the State while recognizing the need for additional services and systemic changes to assure a high level of quality, improved access, and decreased fragmentation.
