Every three years, the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Coordinator and team compiles a comprehensive program report and expenditure plan that includes the department’s vision of potential changes and how it envisions implementing those changes over the next three years. The plan also lists every program that includes any MHSA funding and provides a program data summary of the services provided. In the subsequent years, an annual update to that plan must be completed. The annual update includes the progress toward the proposed changes and any other notable updates to the overall programs. Again, each update also includes a program summary report of all MHSA-funded programs. Seventy-five percent (75%) of the MHSA funding that the Department receives goes toward the Community Services and Supports (CS&S) programs. It is required that fifty-one percent (51%) of the CS&S budget be utilized in Full-Service Partnership programs.
A Full Service Partnership is “the collaborative relationship between the County and the client, and when appropriate the client’s family, through which the County plans for and provides the full spectrum of community services so that the client can achieve the identified goal." (California Code of Regulations, Title 9, Section 3200.130). In Butte County, there are currently two internal FSP programs. Support, Engagement, Advocacy, Recovery, Community and Housing (SEARCH) provides services for adults (ages 26 to 59 years) and older adults (ages 60+ years) while the Youth Intensive Program (YIP) provides services to transition age youth (ages 16 to 25 years) and children (ages 0 to 15 years).
