The public is invited to a hearing on Fresno County’s three-year Mental Health Services Act plan from 3-5 p.m. Aug. 17 at Blue Sky Wellness Center, 1616 E. Saginaw Way, Room 108, in Fresno.
The three-year plan will guide the county in how it spends funds from the Mental Health Services Act, a tax on millionaires that California voters approved in 2004 to improve mental health services.
The plan includes new program requests, deletion of programs, consolidation of programs and fiscal changes.
The law requires the public have 30 days to comment, which is culminating in the public hearing. Forms for public comment are available at the county’s MHSA website or by calling (559) 600-6899.
