Mental Health Services Act

In November, 2004, California voters passed Proposition 63, the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) which became law on January 1, 2005.  The Act imposed one percent taxation on individual income exceeding $1 million. The MHSA is a unified, statewide initiative to provide improved care for individuals living with a mental illness and to outline a methodology to the plan of care and delivery of mental health services. All services were determined to be provided within a set of MHSA core values:

  • Wellness, Recovery and Resilience
  • Community Collaboration
  • Cultural Competence
  • Client & Family Driven Services
  • Integrated Services
