In enacting Proposition 63, the Mental Health Services Act, California voters in 2004 created and charged the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission with the responsibility of driving transformational change in public and private mental health systems to achieve the vision that everyone who needs mental health care has access to and receives effective and culturally competent care. The Commission was designed to empower stakeholders, with members representing consumers and their families, service providers, law enforcement, educators, and employers. The Commission puts consumers and families at the center of decision-making.

Funded by the Mental Health Services Act, full service partnership (FSP) programs are designed to apply a “whatever it takes” approach to partnering with individuals on their path to wellness and recovery. Currently, more than 60,000 individuals are enrolled in  FSP programs across the state, representing nearly a $1 billion annual investment in public funds.
