TSET renews department funds.
Byline: Journal Record Staff
OKLAHOMA CITY The Oklahoma Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust board of directors approved a grant with the state's behavioral health system to reduce tobacco use and improve the health of Oklahomans seeking treatment for substance abuse. The board approved a three-year grant for up to $1.2 million to the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services to continue work to reduce tobacco use. TSET's funds also help leverage additional Medicaid dollars to the state to address behavioral health and addiction needs. This innovative partnership allows us to address critical mental health issues, while also reducing tobacco use among people with a mental health or substance abuse disorder, said TSET Executive Director John Woods.
