The Behavioral Health Department has released its current Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Innovation component plan for public review from March 23, 2021 until April 21, 2021.
The County of San Luis Obispo’s Behavioral Health Department (SLOBHD) is excited to put forth this plan to utilize Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Innovation (INN) component funds to test new methods to serve and engage the community mental health field. The goal of the proposed Innovation projects is to build capacity within the community by learning new and adapted models for promoting positive mental health and reducing the negative impact of mental illness and stigma.
Over a sixteen-month period, the SLOBHD worked collaboratively with local stakeholders, including consumers and family members, to develop the County’s INN Plan containing two INN projects. The plan consists of new and novel mental health practices or approaches that will contribute to informing the County and its stakeholders as to improved methods for addressing mental health disparities.
The County of San Luis Obispo’s INN Plan consists of two distinct projects which will be conducted over four years. The total cost of the two projects, including administrative services, is projected to be approximately $1.2 million. The projects will be funded with the County’s INN funds.
