Behavioral Health Seeks Public Input on Three-Year Plan

San Bernardino County Department of Behavioral Health (DBH) invites community members to review and comment on the draft Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Three-Year Integrated Plan, fiscal years 2020 through 2023.

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 and the proposed changes to MHSA programing in the upcoming fiscal years.

View and comment on the draft plan by visiting www.sbcounty.gov/dbh now until March 24.

For additional information on the update or to request interpretation services or disability-related accommodations, call (800) 722-9866 (dial 7-1-1 for TTY users) or email mhsa@dbh.sbcounty.gov.

“The draft plan highlights DBH’s on going efforts towards expanding services to children, people in crisis, and people experiencing homelessness,” said DBH Director Veronica Kelley. “Community feedback on the plan supports DBH in its development of services inclusive of the diverse voices of clients, family members, and other behavioral health stakeholders.”

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 www.sbcounty.gov.
