ABOUT THE MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES ACT
Berkeley receives funding from the State of California through the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA), which places a 1% tax on personal incomes above $1 million dollars. MHSA Funds are distributed to mental health jurisdictions based on the population in a given area. Berkeley receives annual funding to support mental health services in the following areas:
- Community Services and Supports (CSS): Provides treatment services and supports for severely mentally ill adults and seriously emotionally disturbed children.
- Prevention & Early Intervention (PEI): For strategies to recognize early signs of mental illness; to improve early access to services and programs; and to prevent mental illness from becoming severe and disabling.
- Innovations (INN): For short-term pilot projects to increase new learning in the mental health field.
