Gov. Cuomo is putting $6.5 million towards kids’ mental health. That includes $354,540 for Ellis Hospital Pediatric Care Practice in Schenectady. The money will go towards a program called "HealthySteps," which identifies and addresses behavioral or developmental problems in kids.

"By ensuring medical practices receive critical funding to support the HealthySteps program, the very best services and resources will be available to help families raise their children in New York," said Gov. Cuomo in a statement. "These health care facilities will be empowered to help address the social, emotional and physical well-being of children across the state, as we continue to build a healthier, stronger New York for all."
