California Mental Health Services Act - Five Years
MHSA funded programs focus on the comprehensive needs of individuals and families and the provision of services designed to prevent more costly interventions.

In November 2004, California voters passed Proposition 63, the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) The law calls for the establishment of the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC). Section 10 of the MHSA (Welfare and Institutions Code Section 5845) established the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC) and defined the creation and composition of the Commission.

The MHSOAC oversees the Adults and Older Adults Systems of Care Act; Human Resources; Innovative Programs; Prevention & Early Intervention Programs; and the Children's Mental Health Services Act. The Commission replaced the advisory committee which had been established pursuant to Welfare and Institutions Code Section 5814.

MHSOAC Oversees the MHSA

The role of the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC) is to oversee the implementation of the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA). The MHSOAC is also responsible for developing strategies to overcome stigma. At any time, the MHSOAC may advise the Governor or the Legislature on mental health policy. The Commission may refer any critical issues related to county performance to the Department of Mental Health (DMH).

The MHSOAC annually reviews and approves county mental health program expenditures for Prevention & Early Intervention (PEI) and Innovation programs. The Commission has review and comment responsibility for Community Services and Supports (CSS), Capital Facilities and Technological Needs, and Workforce, Education and Training programs.
