Mental Health Services Act

In November 2004, California voters approved Ballot Proposition 63 and the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) became state law effective January 1, 2005. The MHSA provides increased funding, personnel and other resources to support county mental health programs and monitor progress toward statewide goals for children, transition age youth, adults, older adults and families.

The Act addresses a broad continuum of prevention, early intervention and service needs and the necessary infrastructure, technology and training elements that will effectively support this system.

The MHSA has been a unique opportunity to transform our community mental health system. The MHSA has provided funding for six broad components of new or expanded activities and services.

The Act imposes a 1% income tax on personal income in excess of $1 million. This tax brings in approximately 1 billion dollars per year to the state of California.
