Governor’s School and Campus Safety Taskforce – Mental Health Workgroup

Introduction

On Monday, December 20, Governor McDonnell issued Executive Order 56 establishing a multidisciplinary task force to review school and campus safety in light of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. The Governor also established a separate mental health workgroup chaired by Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and Secretary of Health and Human Resources Dr. Bill Hazel. The Mental Health Workgroup is tasked with evaluating Virginia's mental health system to recommend improvements for identification, intervention, and treatment of behavioral and mental disabilities with a focus on ways to prevent acts of violence.
