What is MHSA?

Purpose: MHSA (or Proposition 63) was approved by voters in 2004.  This Act imposes a 1% income tax on personal income in excess of $1 million in order to increase county mental health funding. MHSA is focused on creating an innovative mental health system that promotes wellness, recovery, and resiliency while decreasing stigma. Services are culturally competent, easier to access, and more effective in preventing and treating serious mental illness.  Please select to view the latest version of the Amended MHSA as revised 01/04/18.
