OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Alameda County will continue to offer mental health services to former workers at the New United Motor Manufacturing plant.
The county's board of supervisors has approved a one-year contract for up to $240,000 with Crisis Support Services of Alameda County. The group will provide mental health services and stress counseling to former workers at the car plant as well as people who stop into career centers around the county.
The Oakland Tribune reports that the contract can be renewed for another two years.
The NUMMI plant in Fremont, a joint venture between Toyota and General Motors, closed in April. More than 4,500 employees were laid off.
