A commission tasked with studying mental health in Maryland will hold a regional meeting in Largo on Wednesday evening.

Lt. Gov. Boyd K. Rutherford (R), the chair of the commission, will lead the meeting, which is part of the commission’s ongoing effort to study access to mental health services and the link between mental health issues and substance use disorders. After receiving public testimony, the panel is expected to make recommendations for change to Gov. Lawrence J. Hogan Jr. (R) at the end of this year.

Commission members include representatives from the state departments of Health, Public Safety and Correctional Services, and Human Services, as well as the Maryland State Police, the Maryland Insurance Administration, and the Opioid Operational Command Center; and six members of the public with experience related to mental health.

Wednesday’s meeting will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Room 262 of Prince George’s Community College’s Kent Hall, 301 Largo Road in Largo.
