The board was to receive date and assistance from any agency of state government so requested. It was to report to the Governor and the General Assembly every other year. The board was composed of two members of the Senate appointed by the president pro tempore; two members of the House appointed by the Speaker; the director of the Department of Mental Health; the chairman of the Board of Mental Health Commissioners; the director of the Division of Planning and Evaluation of the Department of Mental Health; the chairmen of the Universities Advisory Council, the Professional Advisory Council, and the State and Federal Agencies Advisory council; and ten members of the public appointed by they Governor and coming from such fields as urban planning, demography, education, law, fiscal management, and psychology (L. 1967, pp. 2722-2724). The board 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).
