BOZEMAN - Brenda York, director of Montana State University's Office of Disability, Re-entry, and Veterans Services, has been appointed by Gov. Brian Schweitzer to join a task force helping Montana service members, veterans and their families make use of the state and federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration resources.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA), a branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is charged with improving the quality and availability of prevention, treatment and rehabilitative services in order to reduce illness, death, disability and cost to society resulting from substance abuse and mental illness.

The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services helps administer the program.

York, who has worked at MSU since 1997, assists veterans attending MSU. MSU is designated a "military-friendly school" by GIjobs.com, a group that tracks opportunities for U.S. military veterans. There are 536 veterans attending MSU.
