The purpose of the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) annual update public hearing is to share with the community the feedback received from the community stakeholder meetings that were held in August 2018. The annual update public hearing provides a structured process that the county uses in partnership with stakeholders in determining how best to utilize funds that become available for the MHSA components.
