State lawmakers have formed a task force to look for ways to improve mental health treatment in Michigan.
It’s called the House C.A.R.E.S task force. C.A.R.E.S stands for Community, Access, Resources, Education and Safety.
The committee was formed by House Speaker Tom Leonard, R-Dewitt. Late last year, Leonard said a mental health overhaul was one of his top priorities.
Now he has appointed over a dozen state lawmakers to serve on the bipartisan task force.
