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 respective county mental health programs.

County MHSA plans shall be developed with local stakeholders, including adults and seniors with severe mental illness, families of children, adults, and seniors with severe mental illness, 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 important interests. Counties shall demonstrate a partnership with constituents and stakeholders throughout the process that includes meaningful stakeholder involvement on mental health policy, program planning and implementation, monitoring, quality improvement, evaluation, and budget allocations.

The MHSA Advisory Committee has monthly meetings on the 4th Wednesday of the Month from 1:30-3. Please see "MHSA FY18-19 Advisory Committee Meeting Schedule" for specifics. All TBD locations will be posted on this website prior to the meeting date.
