Proposition 63 was passed by voters in November 2004 and became a State law called the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA). Effective January 1, 2005, the MHSA provides State funding to counties for expanded and innovative mental health programs. The MHSA funds several local program components. Please visit the County's Network of Care website below for the latest information, reports and updates on planning and implementation of MHSA services.
