County Behavioral Health seeks public input on mental health plan

County seeks public input on Mental Health Services Act

The San Bernardino County Department of Behavioral Health (DBH) invites community members to review and comment on the draft Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Annual Update, for fiscal year 2024/25.

The draft plan is a comprehensive report that illustrates the impact made by DBH and its contracted partners in addressing the behavioral health needs of San Bernardino County. This report also includes the proposed changes to MHSA programming for the upcoming fiscal years. View and comment on the draft plan by visiting https://wp.sbcounty.gov/dbh/programs/mhsa/ now until March 21, 2024. For additional information on the update or to request interpretation services or disability-related accommodations, please call (800) 722-9866 (dial 7-1-1 for TTY users) or email [email protected].

“Community input is essential in our planning process,” said DBH Director Dr. Georgina Yoshioka. “Community is at the center of what we do. Therefore, it is important that you share feedback for DBH to plan on further developing our services.”

The MHSA was passed by California voters in November 2004 and is funded by a one percent tax surcharge on personal income over $1 million per year. DBH, through the MHSA, is supporting the Countywide Vision by providing behavioral health services and ensuring residents have the resources they need to promote wellness, recovery, and resilience in the community. Information on the Countywide Vision and on DBH can be found at https://main.sbcounty.gov/.
