Toni Wolf, Commissioner of Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission 

Toni Wolf
The Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission serves people with a variety of disabilities to both live and work within their community of choice and while Toni has understanding of all disabilities, MRC will benefit most from her expertise in the mental health field. Mental health disabilities are currently the most served disability by the agency and in a recent statement, she promised to look at the gap the mental health community has left between brain injury survivors (both traumatic and acquired) and a diagnosed mental health illness to better improve our programs for living in the community and employment. By obtaining knowledge from experts and implementing best practices, MRC will be able to provide better services to our population in pursuing independent living and employment, regardless of disability.
