 The Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) was enacted into law January 1, 2005. This followed the passage of Proposition 63 in November 2004, which proposed a 1% tax on adjusted annual income over $1,000,000. This new stream of funding is dedicated to transforming the public mental health system and seeks to reduce the long-term adverse impact from untreated serious mental illness.  

San Luis Obispo County's Behavioral Health Department (SLOBHD) receives additional funding annually as a result of the MHSA.

To access the MHSA funds, counties are required to develop three-year work plans based on targeted components to carry out the goals and objectives of the MHSA. These plans must be created in collaboration with clients, family members, providers, and other community stakeholders and circulated for public comment prior to being submitted to the California Department of Mental Health. 

The following Components have been planned and are being implemendted in San Luis Obispo County:

Community Services and Supports (CSS) - Includes Housing

Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI)

Workforce Education and Training (WET)

Capital Facilities and Technological Needs (CFTN)

Innovation (INN)
