Learn More About Proposition 1 and it’s Impact on the Mental Health Services Act

Proposition 1 is a two-part ballot initiative focused on California’s behavioral health service system. This measure includes two significant components:

  • A $6.4B general obligation bond that would provide funding for behavioral health treatment and residential facilities as well as increase housing/supports for individuals at risk of or experiencing homelessness with behavioral health challenges.
