The MHSA Three-Year Program and Expenditure Plan FYs 2017-2020 was approved by the Yolo County Board of Supervisors
 on Tuesday, April 4, 2017. To view the approved plan, visit www.yolocounty.org/mhsadocs

THANK YOU to Yolo County Board of Supervisors, Local Mental Health Board, and the Mental Health System Stakeholders of Yolo County for the active participation in the Community Planning Process that helped to inform this plan! 


Program Description

In November 2004, California voters passed Proposition 63, the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA). MHSA funding provides a broad continuum of prevention, early intervention and services, and the necessary infrastructure, technology and training elements to effectively support the local mental health services system throughout California.

Yolo County's public planning process for implementation of the MHSA began in the fall of 2004 and continues today. This webpage supports the ongoing work effort by providing access to related documents for each component of the MHSA.
