The Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) is a 1-percent tax on California millionaires which has been funding many mental health programs and services in Shasta County since 2004. These funds are used to provide services for children, youth, adults, older adults, and families. MHSA-funded crisis and outpatient services include medication support, intensive case management services, and education on wellness management. MHSA also funds programs such as housing, suicide prevention, the reduction of the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness, prevention and early intervention for mental health crises, and workforce education. All services and programs are designed to help prevent or lessen the effect of mental illness on individuals and families.
The MHSA programs are developed and implemented in collaboration with consumers of mental health services and their family members, as well as various community stakeholders.
