Mental Health Services Act (MHSA)

What is the Mental Health Services Act?

The passage of Prop 63 in Nov. 2004 created the Mental Health Services Act. The purpose of the Mental Health Services Act is to expand and improve mental health services and transform the mental health system. Santa Cruz County residents were requested to participate in the planning process. Based on the feedback from individuals, consumers of mental health services (and their family members), and all community stakeholders we developed a plan based on the needs of the community and the treatment methods known to be the most effective to achieve the best results.
