Bazelon Center analysis of proposed 2011 budget: The current edition of Mental Health Policy Reporter, the online newsletter of the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law, examines President Obama's proposed appropriations for mental health care in the 2011 budget and concludes, "If its freezes, cuts, and increases were enacted as submitted (never happens), children and adults with mental disabilities would win some and lose a little." Under the proposed three-year freeze for non-security-related domestic discretionary spending, programs would not be subjected to across-the-board cuts; however, many would be cut, eliminated, consolidated, or funded at 2010 levels, while others would receive increases. The budget proposes a $110 million increase for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, which includes a $23 million increase for programs administered by the Center for Mental Health Services—specifically for children's services and programs for the homeless population. The proposal includes an additional $25.5 billion in Medicaid funding for states, which would extend by six months (through June 2011) the increase in federal matching funds provided in the American Recovery and Investment Act of 2009. The proposal also continues reentry investments in the Second Chance Act by providing $100 million in 2011. The Second Chance Act is targeted to reduce recidivism by offenders reentering society from incarceration through access to job training, mental health counseling, and other services and supports.
