Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Information



In November 2004, California voters passed Proposition 63, known as the Mental Health
Services Act or MHSA. MHSA imposes a 1% income tax on personal income in excess of $1 million.

MHSA provides the first opportunity in many years for increased funding, personnel, and other resources to support county mental health programs and monitor progress toward statewide goals for children, transition age youth, adults, older adults, and families.

MHSA addresses a broad continuum of prevention, early intervention and service needs and the necessary infrastructure, technology and training elements that will effectively support this system.

MHSA has five components or plans:

How to Get Involved

  • MHSA is a community driven system and the public is strongly encouraged to provide input and feedback.
  • MHSA Stakeholders meets quarterly and is open to anyone who is interested in finding out more about MHSA and providing input.
  • MHSA Steering Committee is composed of consumers, family members, and representatives of underserved populations. The Steering Committee and its work groups are working on a Five Year Strategic Plan for MHSA.
  • MHSA Community Planning Meetings take place as needed to gather input for MHSA plans.
  • All MHSA plans and updates have a 30 day public comment period. All Stakeholders, community members, mental health consumers, and family members are strongly encouraged to provide feedback. Comments can be made by email, mail, or over the phone.
