Mental Health Services Act People have things to do which are important to them, including things such as employment, vocational training, education, and social and community activities. People are able to have safe and adequate housing, children are safe living with their families and there are fewer numbers of people who have no place to live. People have family and friends to help them and to be with them and provide support for them. People can get the help they need when and where they need it. There are fewer adults in the jails and young people in juvenile halls who have serious mental health problems. Most mental health services and supports are voluntary, where the person chooses the services and supports they want. There are less “involuntary services” which are services such as having to be in a hospital or a locked institution, or children having to live in a place which is not their own home or with their own family. The outcomes that the California Department of Mental Health wants to achieve as a result of the MHSA.
