Mental Health Services Act (MHSA)-Proposition 63 Today
More than 2 million adults—about 8% of the population—are affected by potentially disabling mental illnesses every year in California.
Proposition 63, the Mental Health Services Act, emphasizes transformation of the mental health system with the intention of expanding services while improving the quality of life for Californians living with or at risk of serious mental illness.
Proposition 63 is funded by levying a 1% tax on personal income above $1 million.
Prop 63 consists of the following programs:
- Community Services & Support
- Capital Facilities and Technological Needs
- Workforce Education & Training
- Prevention & Early Intervention
More than $8 billion dollars has been generated since Proposition 63 went into effect in 2005.
