Seeking Public Comment

California voters passed the Mental Health Services Act (formerly Prop 63) in November 2004. Since that time, Marin County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services Division has been involved in planning and implementing a number of mental health service strategies in accordance with MHSA funding guidelines.

The Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) Component of the Three-Year Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Program and Expenditure Plan is being released for an early review public comment period in order to release Requests for Proposals (RFPs) in a timely manner. The vast majority of the programs in the Prevention and Early Intervention component will be operated by community-based organizations and in order to ensure they are able to plan for FY20/21 we wanted to release this component as early as possible. The entire MHSA Three Year Plan will be released later this Spring and all RFPs will be awarded with funding pending Board of Supervisor approval.

During the 30 day public comment period (February 10-March 10, 2020) for this draft PEI plan, you can submit comments online at [MarinHHS.org/MHSA]MarinHHS.org/MHSA or in writing and mailed to:

Galen Main, MSW
20 North San Pedro Rd
Suite 2020
San Rafael, CA 94903

If you would like to request a printed copy of the draft PEI plan, reach out to MHSA Coordinator, Galen Main, at (415) 473-6238 or by emailing gmain@marincounty.org

The Public Hearing for the PEI Component of the MHSA Three-Year Plan will be held on March 10, 2020, at the Mental Health Board Meeting at 6pm. The location of the hearing will be:

20 North San Pedro Rd
Point Reyes Conference Room

All are welcome!
