School Safety and Mental Health Commission

The School Safety and Mental Health Commission was established in the Fiscal Year 2022-2023 State School Aid Act to provide recommendations to reduce youth suicides and strengthen the mental health of school-age children, adolescents, and their families through a comprehensive, statewide approach.  Commissioners were appointed by Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

The Commission holds quarterly meetings, or as it deems necessary, and meetings are open to the public. Citizens and organizations wishing to observe or discuss matters under the Commission's jurisdiction are encouraged to attend.
