Commission to Study Mental and Behavioral Health in Maryland
In January 2019, Lt. Governor Rutherford announced Executive Order 01.01.2019.06, signed by Governor Hogan, establishing the Commission to Study Mental and Behavioral Health in Maryland. The commission, which will be chaired by Lt. Governor Rutherford, has been tasked with studying mental health in Maryland, including access to mental health services and the link between mental health issues and substance use disorders. The commission includes representatives from each branch of state government, representatives from the state departments of Health, Public Safety and Correctional Services, and Human Services, as well as the Maryland State Police, the Maryland Insurance Administration, the Opioid Operational Command Center, and six members of the public with experience related to mental health.
