Mental Health Services Act
The Mental Health Services Act (MHSA), also known as Proposition 63, was approved by voters in 2004 and imposes a 1% income tax on personal income in excess of $1 million. This tax brings in approximately 2 billion dollars per year to the state of California. MHSA addresses a broad continuum of prevention, early intervention and service needs to more effectively support the mental health system.

Current MHSA Documents
Every three years, Counties must develop a Three-Year MHSA Plan outlining priorities for spending MHSA funds. Counties update the plan annually to be responsive to MHSA revenues and community needs. Counties must perform a comprehensive community mental health needs assessment to inform the Three Year Plans, and all plans and updates should be developed with local stakeholder input. Counties will also annually report on performance outcomes for funded programs.
