Mental Health Services Act
April 29, 2005
Prop. 63, the Mental Health Services Act, funded by a new tax on high income individuals, is designed to expand and transform California’s County Mental Health service systems. The State Department of Mental Health (SDMH) will contract with County Mental Health Departments to develop, manage and implement the provisions of Prop. 63. The legislation requires an intensive planning process by each county to develop proposals for executing the purpose and intent of the Act.

County Mental Health Departments will expend funds made available through the Act towards a state-of-the-art, culturally-competent system that promotes recovery through independence, hope, personal empowerment and resiliency for adults and seniors with severe mental illness and for children with serious emotional disorders.
