What the Mental Health Services Act does

Community Services and Supports

These programs aim to change the public mental health system by improving systems, expanding services and creating new systems of delivery.

Prevention and Early Intervention

We're bringing mental health awareness to the whole community through these programs.

Workforce Education and Training

Our goal is to create a more diverse public mental health workforce that includes clients and family members.

Capital Facilities and Technological Needs
