Va. Mental Health Task Force To Meet On Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. - A mental health task force established last month by Gov. Bob McDonnell is set to meet for the first time.
    
The Task Force on Improving Mental Health Services and Crisis Response will meet Tuesday in Richmond. It includes legislators, other state officials, community mental health workers, hospital administrators and law enforcement authorities.
    
The panel is co-chaired by Secretary of Health and Human Resources Bill Hazel and outgoing Secretary of Public Safety Bryan Rhode.
    
McDonnell created the task force after the November death of state Sen. Creigh (KREE) Deeds' son. Gus Deeds stabbed his father multiple times before committing suicide at their Bath County home. The incident occurred hours after Gus Deeds had been released from an emergency custody order.
    
McDonnell is scheduled to attend the meeting.
