On eve of Newtown anniversary, $100 million in mental health aid
10 Dec 2013 | 3:46 pm
By Jeff Mason and Roberta Rampton WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday announced a new push to increase access to mental health services with $100 million in new government funding nearly a year after a school shooting rampage in Newtown, Connecticut. Biden, who spearheaded a failed Obama administration campaign for stronger gun control measures following the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, met with families of the victims and mental health advocates. "The fact that less than half of children and adults with diagnosable mental health problems receive the treatment they need is unacceptable," he said in a statement. President Barack Obama has said the worst day of his presidency was December 14, 2012, the day a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at the school before turning a gun on himself.
