LANSING, Michigan (AP) – A nonprofit organization in Oakland County that provides mental health crisis services will receive $100,000 in state funding after the Oxford High School mass shooting.

Common ground assistance is included in the $841 million supplemental spending bill that won legislative approval Tuesday night and will be signed by Governor Gretchen Whitmer. The scholarship aims to support mental health services for students, teachers, parents and first responders in the Oxford High School community.

The Common Ground provides 24-hour services to more than 80,000 people each year, according to Senator Ruth Johnson. Those who need immediate advice can also call the Disaster Helpline at (800) 985-5990.
