State Rep. Matt Lori was named by House Speaker Jase Bolger to Gov. Rick Snyder’s newly created Mental Health and Wellness Commission.
The six-member commission will advise the Michigan Department of Community Health on strengthening the state’s mental-health system. Their advisory role includes considering the best solutions for education, public safety, veterans independence and service delivery.
Lori, a Constantine-area resident whose jurisdiction includes St. Joseph County and a portion of Cass County, said the commission is tasked with issuing a report of its findings by mid-December.
