Proposition 63, known as the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA), was approved by California voters in 2004, and became law in January 2005. It is funded by a 1-percent tax on personal income higher than $1 million. These funds have been used in Shasta County since 2005 to provide services for children, youth, adults, older adults, and families. All services and programs are designed to help prevent or lessen the effect of mental illness on individuals and families.
The MHSA is divided into five components. All projects and programs are planned, developed, approved, implemented, monitored and updated through the community stakeholder process. You can learn more about these programs in our Three-Year Program and Expenditure Plan, and in our most recent Annual Update.
