TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Gov. Sam Brownback has announced his selections to participate in a statewide task force to address mental health issues in Kansas.

The Republican governor is asking the group to recommend ways state agencies that provide mental health services can better coordinate their efforts while making good use of resources.

Kansas has two state mental hospitals and 27 community mental health centers that work with private contractors, residential facilities and providers.

The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services will oversee the task force. The first meeting of the group will be July 18 in Topeka.

Brownback will receive a report from the task force on its findings and recommendations.
