Mental Health Services Act Forum Scheduled July 18 in San Pablo


Monday, July 1, 2019


WHAT

Contra Costa Behavioral Health Services, a division of Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS), invites anyone interested in discussing local public mental health services in relation to supportive housing to participate in a public forum on Thursday, July 18, in San Pablo.

 

The forum offers the community an opportunity to discuss its needs and meet with service providers to discuss current issues relevant to supportive housing. These discussions will help to inform future use of local Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) funding.

WHO:

All members of the public are welcome, including people that have or are receiving supportive housing services, their families or loved ones, and interested members of the community. RSVP online at cchealth.org/mentalhealth/mhsa – click the "Supportive Housing Community Forum" button.

Other RVSP options include emailing mhsa@cchealth.org – please include "MHSA Forum" in the subject line – or by telephoning 925-957-2617. Attendees may also mail RSVPs to MHSA, 1220 Morello Avenue, Suite 100, Martinez, CA 94553.

WHEN:

Thursday, July 18th at 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Contra Costa College, 2600 Mission Bell Drive, Room GE 225, San Pablo, CA 94806

WHY:

Contra Costa County's current MHSA budget provides over $50 million to more than 80 mental health programs and services. Forum goals include identifying service needs, priorities and strategies to inform the county's MHSA Three-Year Program and Expenditure Plan for fiscal years 2020-2023.

 

The forum will include an overview of the MHSA and current funding use in Contra Costa County.
