BP announced that it is providing $52 million to federal and state health organizations to fund behavioral health support and outreach programs across the US Gulf Coast region.

The funding will help residents link up with support that is available through providers in their communities, through a variety of local outreach programs and a special toll free phone line where people can turn for information on available services.

"We appreciate that there is a great deal of stress and anxiety across the region and as part of our determination to make things right for the people of the region, we are providing this assistance now to help make sure individuals who need help know where to turn," said Lamar McKay, President of BP America and incoming leader of the Gulf Coast Restoration Organization.

Specifically, BP is providing funding to five agencies, one at the federal level and one in each of the affected states.

SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) - $10m
Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals - $15m
Mississippi Department of Mental Health -- $12m
Alabama Department of Mental Health-- $12m
Florida Department of Children and Families-- $3m

In recent weeks BP officials have held meetings with and gathered input from federal and state officials, behavioral health organizations and experts, and community groups and leaders to assess the needs of Gulf Coast residents.
