Input sought on mental health plan

The County of Santa Clara Behavioral Health Services Department is seeking input from the public on its next Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) three-year plan.

A community-wide Mental Health Survey is available through March 25 at MyVoiceOurChange.org.

Virtual community conversations are being held in February and March. These conversations are hosted by Behavioral Health and partner organizations to get feedback on three questions:

• What are essential mental health or substance use needs?

• What should stay the same?

• What should be added or changed?

To find a Community Conversation to join, visit bhsd.sccgov.org/about-us/mental-health-services-act.

“Community input is necessary and vital to decisions that can improve and enhance our services,” said Sherri Terao, director of the Behavioral Health Services Department. “This input provides meaningful contributions to our decisions about behavioral health projects and programs.” 

Feedback and findings will be used to inform the development of the plan for fiscal years 2024 to 2026. Information from the survey and conversations will be available in the spring.
