On July 21, 2017, Mono County Behavioral Health (MCBH) posted a draft of its 2017-2020 Mono County Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Three-Year Plan for public comment. Members of the community are invited to review the plan and submit comments by emailing Amanda Greenberg at agreenberg [at] mono [dot] ca [dot] gov or by attending a public meeting on August 22nd from 5:30-6:30 pm at the Sierra Wellness Center in Mammoth's Sierra Center Mall (2nd floor).
The MHSA requires counties to conduct a Community Planning Process and a Local Review Period. To identify county needs and to engage the public in our planning process, MCBH asked residents to fill out a Community Survey and participate in several focus groups. Through this process, MCBH staff and other stakeholders developed the 2017-2020 MHSA Three-Year Plan. We now invite the public to review the plan and provide comments on the proposed services and activities.
MCBH uses MHSA funds to pay for a very wide array of programs, activities, and services. These range from the wellness centers in Walker and Mammoth, to the community socials in Bridgeport and Benton, to North Star, our school-based counseling center. To learn more about how MCBH uses its MHSA funds and to weigh in on the programs we offer, be sure to participate in our public comment period.
