SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah's mental health industry is about to get a big financial boost.

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, the Utah Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health was awarded a federal grant that could eventually total over $2 million over the next five years.

The grant comes as state programs face millions of dollars in budget cuts.

The agency will use the funds to expand its Youth in Transition Program -- which help kids with mental health develop life skills into adulthood.
