Health Care Reform Education Project (2012)

Amistad, Inc., in partnership with the Co-Occurring Collaborative Serving Maine, NAMI Maine, and the Consumer Council System of Maine, developed and implemented a Health Care Reform Education program which reached out to, connected with, and educated peers and individuals in recovery throughout the state of Maine about the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act on mental health and substance abuse services. This project was funded by a small grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) through the end of 2012.
