Public Comment Period Closes Friday

The Public Comment Period for the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Annual Update FY 2015-16 ends this Friday, December 4, 2015.

California’s MHSA (Proposition 63) imposes a 1% tax on personal income over $1 million.  Funding is provided to county mental health programs to fund programs consistent with their local plans, which are developed with community and stakeholder input.

The Annual Update is an opportunity to provide information to help track, evaluate, and communicate local and statewide impact of the MHSA.

Please review the MHSA Annual Plan available on our MHSA website, http://www.smchealth.org/bhrs/mhsa and let us know your thoughts.  Please also note recent updates made to the plan:

  • Updated the Funding Summary (p. 12-17)
  • Added FSP adult arrests data outcomes and clarification on data sample (p. 21)
  • Added demographics and outcome data for Outreach & Engagement efforts (p. 44-45)
