Starting May 8, community residents are invited to review and comment on the county’s Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) three-year plan.
The plan outlines the MHSA programs and expenditures through fiscal year 2016/17. The comment period will be open for 30 days.
The MHSA provides funding to counties to develop and expand innovative and integrated mental health services for children, youth, adults and older adults. The MHSA is funded by Proposition 63, which imposes a 1 percent tax on personal income in excess of $1 million.
Once the open comment period has ended, there will be a public hearing before the plan is sent to the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors for adoption.
The plan can be reviewed online at http://humboldtgov.org/451/Documents-Open-for-Public-Comment.
Comments can be submitted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. They can also be sent to DHHS Mental Health, attn: Jaclyn Culleton at 720 Wood St., Eureka, Ca. 95501. Recorded comments can be made by calling 707-441-3770, or toll free 866-320-8911. A printed copy of the three-year plan may also be requested by phone or email.
