Mental Health Services Act (MHSA)
The Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) was passed by California voters in 2004 as Proposition 63. It is funded by a 1% income tax on personal income in excess of $1 million per year. It is designed to expand and transform California's behavioral health system to better serve individuals with, and at risk of, serious mental health issues, and their families. MHSA addresses a broad continuum of prevention, early intervention and service needs and the necessary infrastructure, technology and training elements that effectively support the public behavioral health system.
