What is the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA)?
After Proposition 63 passed in November 2004, it later became known as the Mental Health Services Act or MHSA. MHSA imposes a 1% income tax on personal income in excess of $1 million, which then affords California’s first opportunity in many years to provide increased funding, personnel and other resources to support county mental health programs. MHSA funds a broad continuum of mental health services, including much-needed prevention & early intervention, infrastructure, technology and training, and innovations.
