MHSA 3-Year Prioritization Results

Last week over 150 advocates, providers and clients came together for the final MHSA 3-Year Plan Prioritization Session.  Clients and service providers shared their heart felt stories and public comments in support of 17 priority recommendations, selected through extensive input from over 60 input sessions throughout the County and across sectors and services.

During the meeting, there was an opportunity to propose additional recommendations and all participants voted across these additional recommendations.  The meeting ended with the MHSA Steering Committee voting to prioritize across all recommendations. These priority recommendations help inform any new programs, strategies or expansions in services in the event of increased MHSA revenue.  To view the materials, presentation, prioritization results and a few public comments, please visit the MHSA website,
