​​​​​​MHSA Components

MHSA funding has five components:

  • Community Services and Support (CSS)
  • Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI)
  • Innovation (INN)
  • Capital Facilities and Technological Needs (CFTN)
  • ​Workforce Education and Training (WET)

Community Services and Support (CSS)

The CSS component is the largest of all five MHSA components. Funding is used to provide direct services to adults and older adults with serious mental illness and children and youth with serious emotional disturbance who meet the criteria set forth in Welfare and Institutions Code (W&I Code) section 5600.3.

The CSS component has the following service categories:

  • Full Service Partnership (FSP) Services
  • Outreach and Engagement (O&E) Services
  • General System Development (GSD)

CSS also helps counties leverage housing funds in local partnerships to build and renovate housing units for individuals with serious mental illness who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Innovation (INN)

The INN component funds projects designed to test time-limited new or changing mental health practices that have not yet been demonstrated as effective. The purpose of the INN component is to infuse new, effective mental health approaches into the mental health system, both for the originating county and throughout California. These projects may focus on increasing access to underserved groups, increasing the quality of services including measurable outcomes, promoting interagency and community collaboration, or increasing access to mental health services. AB 1467, chaptered in June 2012, reinstated the MHSOAC's authority to approve county Innovation plans.
