The Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC) was created through Prop 63, the Mental Health Services Act, is tasked with oversight of the implementation of the MHSA. The Commission evaluates MHSA-funded programs throughout the State, provides approval of county Innovation plans, and receives all county 3-year plans, annual updates, and annual Revenue and Expenditure Reports. Additionally, the Commission leads a number of statewide efforts to support suicide prevention, criminal justice, student mental health, county triage crisis funding, and stakeholder advocacy.
