Mental Health Services Act

Prop 63 Logo

Mental Health Services Act

In 2004, California voters passed the Mental Health Services Act or MHSA (Proposition 63). The MHSA places a 1% tax on personal incomes over $1,000,000 and then distributes those funds to behavioral health departments across the state. The goal of the MHSA is to transform the public mental health system into one that is client- and family-driven, recovery-oriented, accessible, and culturally competent.

In Mono County, the Behavioral Health Department uses MHSA funds to pay for a very wide array of programs, activities, and services. These range from the wellness centers in Walker and Mammoth to the community socials in Bridgeport and Benton to North Star, our school-based counseling center.
