HHSA Mental Health Community Needs Assessment NewsFlash

Take the Mental Health Services Act: Community Needs Assessment Survey

What is the MHSA? 

The Mental Health Services Act (MHSA), also known as Prop 63, was passed by California voters in November 2004. MHSA is funded by a 1% tax for those earning over $1 million per year, and is designed to expand and transform California's county mental health systems.

How will this survey be used?

Nevada County Behavioral Health is seeking input on which mental health services should be prioritized to best serve our community. This survey is part of the planning process for the next Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Three-Year Plan, starting in July 2020.

Survey Format

This survey has 22 questions and will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. The survey has four sections: (1) prevention and early intervention services; (2) treatment and recovery services; (3) access to services; and (4) personal demographic information. All answers are optional, and your responses will be anonymous and confidential.


If you have questions about this survey, please email or call Priya Kannall, MHSA Coordinator, at (530) 265-1790.

Thanks in advance for offering your personal and/or professional perspectives on mental health programming in Nevada County!
