Commission on Mental Health - RG 322 | Illinois State Archives

Name: Commission on Mental Health - RG 322


Historical Note: The Commission on Mental Health was created by the General Assembly in 1959 to study progress and problems in the hospitalization, care, treatment, and training of the mentally afflicted; means of further promoting an efficient statewide mental health program; the need to further codify and revise mental health laws; and means to raise the overall mental health of the state's population. It was to report every other year to the General Assembly. It was made up of three members of the Senate appointed by the president pro tempore, three members of the House appointed by the Speaker, the director of the Department of Public Welfare, and three interested citizen members appointed by the Governor (L. 1959. pp. 1234-1235). The commission was abolished in 1975 when its responsibilities were transferred to the newly created Commission on Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities (P.A. 79-377, p. 1394).
