    Notice of Meeting

    On Tuesday, September 23, 2014, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on Proposition 63, the Mental Health Services Act of 2004. The hearing will begin at 9:30 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    At this hearing, the Commission will review oversight mechanisms for the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) funding and the outcomes resulting from the state’s investment of this funding in mental health services.

    The Commission will first hear from a co-author of the initiative who will provide his 2004 and current expectations for the initiative, explain how the Act has changed and consider the appropriateness of the current oversight structure. Next, a panel comprised of two organizations that represent clients and their families has been asked to discuss how mental health services have fared since passage of MHSA. The Commission will then hear from the director of research and evaluation of the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission, who will discuss the commission’s evolving role and strategies to improve oversight of the MHSA funds. The director will be accompanied by two commissioners who respectively chair the commission’s financial oversight and evaluation committees. The Commission also will hear from the deputy director of the Department of Health Care Services’ mental health and substance use disorder services division, who will discuss the department’s new role in providing oversight of MHSA funds and the impact of the MHSA on statewide capacity to provide mental health services and supports. Finally, representatives from Los Angeles and Sonoma county behavioral health departments will discuss how the MHSA funds have been used in their counties and describe their efforts to measure, track and evaluate MHSA outcomes.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments.

    Immediately following the hearing, the Commission will hold a business meeting in Conference Room 175 on the first floor of 925 L Street in Sacramento.
