We have just found out that Senator David Carlucci has been announced as
the new Mental Hygiene Chair. This is great news as Senator Carlucci was
the former chair and has been a great friend to MHANYS and the entire
mental health community. He was the leader in the Senate for the Mental
Health Tax Check Off and was a huge supporter of Mental Health First Aid,
Workforce, Housing, Mental Health Education, CIT, Veterans Mental Health
and an array of other issues that are important to us. We look forward to
working with him.
Senator Ortt was the chair for the past four years and he was a terrific
chair and friend. He was a great advocate for us in so many areas and we
continue to look forward to working with him and his staff in the future.
We will share more in the coming weeks.
Congratulations to Senator Carlucci
