The public comment period for the Proposition 63 Mental Health Services Act Prevention and Early Intervention Plan has been kicked off and is open until December 15 according to the Placer County Health and Human Services Department. The community is invited to make comments in person, by mail or email over the next month.
The Placer County MHSA/Proposition 63 Prevention and Early Intervention Plan focuses on preventing or providing early intervention in order to prevent, the onset of serious mental illness for a variety of age groups and populations. The Plan outlined in the report reflects the input from dozens of stakeholders over the course of a 10-month planning period.
The intended outcomes for the described programs are to reduce stigma around mental illness, prevent suicide, and reduce the risk of children, youth and transition-age youth entering the juvenile justice system, reduce school failure, improve family function, and reduce acute cases of mental illness.
The Prevention and Early Intervention Plan is available for review in hard copy format at all Placer County libraries and Family Resource Centers.
