Senator Collins Co-Sponsors Mental Health System Improvement Bill
Maine Republican Susan Collins is among a bipartisan group of Senators sponsoring a bill aimed at strengthening the nation's health care system. 
The measure would, among other things, improve access to mental health services at the community level. 
 
It would create standards for about two-thousand "federally qualified" community behavioral health centers. 
 
The centers would be required to provide services including substance abuse treatment and 24-hour crisis care.
