The 2020-2023 planning process is happening now!






In late 2019, the Department of Behavioral Health (DBH) completed the 2020-2023 MHSA Three-Year Planning Process. County staff hosted 20 forums and collected 595 surveys, while several contracted providers hosted focus groups for their program participants.  DBH staff will now use this data to create a draft of the 2020-2023 MHSA Three-Year Plan.
