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.
