California voters passed MHSA (Proposition 63) in November 2004; the law was enacted Jan. 1, 2005. MHSA places a 1 percent tax on personal incomes more than $1 million. Counties receive funds through the state with the goal of transforming the public mental health system into one that is consumer and family driven, recovery oriented, accessible and culturally competent.
