Mental Health Services Act (MHSA)
What is this service?
The Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) provides funding to counties to expand and develop innovative, integrated services for children,adolescents, adults and older adults. California's voters passed the Act in November 2004 as a result of a movement intended to transform public mental health care. This page is designed to provide information on the County of SLO's work plans, and invite you to participate in their implementation.
To access the MHSA funds, counties are required to develop work plans based on targeted components to carry out the goals and objectives of the MHSA. These plans must be created in collaboration with consumers, family members, providers, and other community stakeholders.
