HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's advisory panel charged with reviewing the Newtown school shooting is convening again to discuss mental health issues.
The Sandy Hook Advisory Commission is holding its 11th meeting on Friday to hear from University of Virginia School of Law experts on trauma, violence and mental illness.
Malloy empaneled the 16-member commission of experts in January to review issues in the areas of gun control, school security and mental health.
The commission forwarded the governor preliminary recommendations on gun laws and school security last month, but is not expected to issue a final report on mental health until later in the year.
Hamden Mayor Scott Jackson, who chairs the commission, said the panel seeks to create public policy models for not just Connecticut but the entire nation.
