In June 2005, the Joint Committee on Access to Mental Health Services was authorized to begin its work (Chapter 318, Acts of 2005).
The Committee monitors the access to mental health services for individuals eligible for those public services, and for individuals with private health insurance. Also, the Committee identifies systemic barriers to mental health care, and recommends ways to remove such barriers, and improve access to mental health services.
Five Senators and five Delegates serve on the Committee (Code State Government Article, sec. 2-10A-05).
