Mental health resources in Williamsport

Williamsport, Lycoming County (WBRE/WYOU) Mayor Derek Slaughter says the city has applied for a $600,000 grant from the Department of Justice to help fund more mental health programs.

Assistant President Jason Bolt of Williamsport PD says this will take some work off their boards and allow those with mental health issues to get the care they need. Mayor Slaughter says they are waiting for news of the grant, which could come any day now.

The mayor also says that even if they are not approved, they are still working on creating these programs. This could take effect by the end of 2022.

Eyewitness reporter Jasmine Allen will get more information on the eyewitness news at 5 o’clock.
