3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 1, at Ambrose Community Center, 3105 Willow Pass Road in Bay Point.
Contra Costa's current MHSA budget, which ends in June 2017, will have provided about $41.6 million to more than 80 mental health programs, prioritized through a similar community planning process.
Forum goals include identifying service gaps and setting priorities for the next 3-year MHSA budget.
Discussion will include an overview of how the MHSA works and how the funding is currently used in Contra Costa.
