Sandy Hook Commission Meets

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s advisory panel charged with reviewing the Newtown school shooting has convened again to discuss mental health issues.

The Sandy Hook Advisory Commission held its 11th meeting on Friday to hear from experts on trauma, violence and mental illness.

Specialists from UConn, Yale University, the University of Virginia School of Law, the National Child Traumatic Stress Network and the Connecticut Center for Effective Practice addressed the panel.

Last month, the commission forwarded preliminary recommendations on gun laws and school security to the governor, who empaneled the commission in January. A final report on mental health issues is not expected until later this year.

Hamden Mayor Scott Jackson, who chairs the commission, said the panel seeks to create policy models for not just Connecticut but the entire nation.
