To identify local differences in the impact of mental illness, regional summits will be conducted across the State. Further, the Commission is to advise and assist the Governor in improving access to mental health services statewide.

In May 2019, four members were added to the Commission, and also a requirement for an annual report (Executive Order 01.01.2019.06).
