Mental Health Services Act

Proposition 63 was passed by voters in November 2004 and became a State law called the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA). Effective January 1, 2005, the MHSA provided State funding to counties for expanded and innovative mental health programs. The MHSA funds several local program components. Please visit the County's Network of Care website below for the latest information, reports and updates on planning and implementation of MHSA services.

The It's Up to Us Mental Health Stigma and Discrimination Reduction media campaign was designed to empower San Diegans to talk openly about mental illness, recognize symptoms, seek help and support those who may be experiencing mental health challenges. The goal of the campaign was to initiate change in perception, inspire wellness and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health challenges. 

The campaign placed ads on television, cable, radio, outdoor, cinema, print and digital media. A website has also been created for the campaign <>.

Recovery is possible and help is available. It's Up to Us.
