RICHMOND, VA. (AP) A $2 million initiative is under way in Virginia to provide mental health care to uninsured residents.
Gov. Bob McDonnell announced the "A New Lease on Life" effort Monday. Treatment will be provided through the Virginia Health Care Foundation.
The foundation received a $1 million challenge grant a year ago from the Attorney General's office when McDonnell was attorney general. The foundation raised $1 million to match the grant.
McDonnell says the initiative will help close a gap in treatment.
