State lawmakers have formed a task force to look for ways to improve mental health treatment in Michigan.
It’s called the House CARES task force. CARES stands for Community, Access, Resources, Education and Safety.
The goal is to help Michiganders with mental health challenges become more independent.
Republican Representative Klint Kesto is on the committee. He says the task force will look for cutting edge initiatives for Michigan.
“We continue to do modest changes that are good, yes, but we should be better than that. We should do great.”
