The MHSA Fiscal Year 2017-2018 Annual Update and Three-Year Plan for Fiscal Years 2017-20, is available for a 30-day public review and comment from October 17 through November 15, 2017.


San Luis Obispo County’s Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Fiscal Year 2017-2018 Annual Update and Three-Year Program and Expenditure Plan for Fiscal Years 2017-20 is available for a 30-day public review and comment from October 17 through November 15, 2017.

The MHSA Fiscal Year 2017-2018 Annual Update and Three-Year Program and Expenditure Plan provides an overview of the work plans and projects being implemented as part of the series of service components launched with the passing of Proposition 63 in 2004. The passage of MHSA provided San Luis Obispo County with increased funding, personnel, and other resources to support mental health programs for underserved children, transitional age youth (TAY), adults, older adults, and families.  MHSA programs address a broad continuum of prevention, early intervention and service needs, and the necessary infrastructure, technology and training elements that support the County’s public mental health system.

This Update was produced by the County of San Luis Obispo’s Behavioral Health Department (SLOBHD) and is intended to provide the community with a progress report on the various projects being conducted as part of the MHSA. In past years, the County has provided an Annual Update which reported results of programs one fiscal year prior to publication. In an attempt to streamline the Annual Update with the Three Year Expenditure Plan, Prevention & Early Intervention Evaluation, and Innovation Planning, the County will now report on the fiscal year immediately preceding the publication date each December. This report includes descriptions of programs and services, as well as results from the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 fiscal years, for the following MHSA components and work plans:

  • Community Services and Supports, including Housing (CSS, implemented 2005)
  • Prevention & Early Intervention (PEI, implemented 2008)
  • Workforce Education and Training (WET, implemented 2009)
  • Capital Facilities and Technological Needs (CFTN, implemented 2009)
  • Innovation (INN, implemented 2011)

The 2017-2018 MHSA Annual Update details the programs being administered, their operating budgets, and results of past implementation.  In accordance with instructions from the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC), this Annual Update includes the Three-Year Program and Expenditure Plan for the fiscal years 2017-2020. The various work plans outlined herein include: proposed program adaptations; any changes to the original component plans or past updates; projected planning and budgeting for the fiscal years (FY) 2017-2018 through 2019-2020.
