Task Force on Mental Health and Substance Use

The purpose of the task force is to reduce stigma and encourage people to seek help before their situation becomes a crisis – and they end up in an emergency department or jail. Appropriate treatment and early intervention can result in significant benefits for individuals, families, communities and taxpayers.
