State Sen. Rob Ortt
ALBANY — State Sen. Rob Ortt has been named chairman of the Standing Committee on Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities, his office announced today.

The Mental Health Committee focuses on the psychological well-being of individuals, improving mental health care services, and aiding and educating in the prevention of mental illness.

Ortt, R-North Tonawanda, said he "will be a fierce advocate for individuals and families in Western New York and across the state who are most in need of compassionate, efficient and effective government."

The military veteran said, “For many veterans, the struggles they deal with overseas don’t end when they come home. So many individuals suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression or addiction. These veterans need help landing back on their feet, getting a job and overcoming their inner struggles. As chairman, I’m devoted to leading their fight in helping vets do just that and easing their transition into civilian life.”

Ortt has also been named to the following Senate standing committees: Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs; Local Government; Higher Education; Environmental Conservation; Corporations, Authorities and Commissions; Civil Service and Pensions; and Cities.
