Among the issues faced include. lack of proper funding, increase in cases of mental disorders as well as stigma faced by victims of mental health disorder (U.S Council of States Government, paras2-3). The third component focuses on organization systems and how they were funded by different entities. Finally, the forth component focused on policy recommendations on effective delivery of mental health services. For example, it was recommended that individuals, families, entities, government and all stake holders should participate in formulating and implementing plans on mental health (U.S Council of States Government, paras2-3).
In above connection, the U.S federal government via several departments such as. department of Substance Abuse, Mental Health and Service Administration(SAMHSA) provided funding to the above components (Sultz & Young pp.315-329). Whereby, the victims of mental disorders were not supposed to receive funding directly but rather through certain bodies (U.S Council of States Government, paras2-10). For instance, in 2004 the department of Substance Abuse, Mental Health and Service Administration in-conjunction with Medicaid and Medicare Center Services provided a total funding worth $434millions in funding mental health system. In addition, the department of Medicaid contributed more funding than any other departments (U.S Council of States Government, paras2-10).
