HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A state commission reviewing the Newtown school shooting is expected to hear from experts about behavioral health and crisis counseling services available in Connecticut.

The 16 members of the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission are reviewing current policies and making recommendations to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy on school safety, mental health and gun violence prevention in the wake of the massacre, which left 20 first graders and six educators dead.

The panel has been focusing recently on mental health issues. Members could also learn more Friday about what, if any, mental health and school records regarding the shooter, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, they may be able to review. Lanza’s father, Peter, has expressed a willingness to help the commission obtain the documents for its investigation.
