What

Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) is currently seeking public comment on its draft Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) plan, which is funded by Prop. 63 (also known as the Mental Health Services Act - MHSA) and aims to prevent mental illness.

Where

The draft plan and the public comment form are available on the CCHS website on the Mental Health Division´s MHSA page at: http://www.cchealth.org/services/mental_health/prop63/ Copies of the draft plan also are available at the CCHS Mental Health Administration offices, 1340 Arnold Drive Suite 200, Martinez. The public also may request a copy of the plan be sent via mail by calling 925-957-5150.

When

Public comments must be received by December 18, 2008.

How

Comment should be made in writing and forms can be hand delivered or mailed to 1340 Arnold Drive Suite 200, Martinez, CA 94553. The public can also send comments via email to MHSA@hsd.cccounty.us or via fax to 925-957-5156. Comments may also be made at the Mental Health Commission´s public hearing at 5 p.m. Thursday, December 18, 2008 in the Board of Supervisors Chambers, 651 Pine Street, Martinez

Why

PEI is one of the MHSA components in which Contra Costa Mental Health is conducting an extensive community planning process. California voters in November 2004 passed the MHSA, levying an additional 1% tax on individuals with taxable annual income of more than $1 million. PEI programs aim to raise awareness about mental health problems, as well as intervene early using low-intensity approaches to help prevent and treat mental illness.
