LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Rick Snyder is taking steps aimed at improving mental health services in Michigan.
The Republican governor issued two executive orders Wednesday to bolster mental health initiatives in the state.
The first creates a Mental Health and Wellness Commission. The commission will be led by Lt. Gov. Brian Calley and will advise the Michigan Department of Community Health on ways to strengthen mental health services.
Snyder has also issued an order to create a Mental Health Diversion Council within the department. The council will create a method to help people with mental illness or substance abuse problems get treatment and stay out of the criminal justice system.
