Santa Clara County Mental Health Services Act Community Services & Supports Plan
Santa Clara County Mental Health Department, Santa Clara County, California
MIG designed an inclusive and participatory planning process to help develop the Santa Clara County Community Services and Supports (CSS) Plan as mandated by California's Mental Health Services Act (MHSA). The CSS Plan describes how the County will improve access, availability and delivery of mental health services. MIG generated public information materials used to collect information from over 10,000 residents in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, and Tagalog. A 70-person Leadership Committee voted unanimously to support the resulting Plan: a $13.4 million annual investment program that is anticipated to transform Santa Clara County’s mental health system over the next three years and beyond.
