Mental Health Services Act

The MHSA provides the opportunity for the State to provide increased funding to transform and support county mental health programs that provide client and family member driven "recovery and resiliency" mental health services to children (and their families), transitional age youth, adults and older adults. The Act is funded through an annual 1% tax on income in excess of $1 million to fund county mental health programs consistent with local county approved plans that include broad-based community involvement including mental health service consumers and family members of consumers.

The MHSA includes six components:

Within these components funding is available for Capital Facilities, Community Planning, Community Services and Supports, Housing, Innovation, Prevention and Early Intervention, Technology and Workforce Education and Training.
