New Illinois Law Expanding Mental Healthcare Access

(IOCI RADIO) – Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed a new law to increase access to mental healthcare in Illinois.

The law addresses the shortage of mental health workers by making it easier for advanced practice professionals who have been out of practice for less than five years to reactivate their state license, the governor said.

There’s also a new tax credit for qualified employers who hire those in recovery from a mental illness or substance use disorder and expanded behavioral health training.
