Public Comment Sought for MHSA FY 18-19 Annual Update & Updated Reversion Expenditure Plan
On November 19, 2018, Mono County Behavioral Health (MCBH) posted a draft of its Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) FY 2018-2019 Annual Update and Updated Reversion Expenditure Plan for public comment. Members of the community are invited to review the plan and submit comments by emailing Amanda Greenberg at firstname.lastname@example.org or by attending a public meeting on December 19th from 5:00-6:00 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 2018-2019 MHSA Annual Update and Updated Reversion Expenditure 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.
