Mental Health Services Act (MHSA)

In November 2004, California voters approved Proposition 63, the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA), intended to expand and transform county mental health services throughout California. While the proposition passed with 54% of the vote statewide, Marin County voted 63% in favor. The MHSA raises additional taxes for the State, which are then allocated to each county.

County MHSA plans are developed with local stakeholders, including individuals living with mental health challenges and their families, providers of services, law enforcement agencies, education, social services agencies, veterans, representatives from veterans' organizations, providers of alcohol and drug services, health care organizations, and other interested community members.
