Mental Health Matters Day

Each year MHAC hosts Mental Health Matters Day in collaboration with our multi-agency planning committee to celebrate May as Mental Health Awareness Month.

Data Shows Serious Mental Illness is not the Cause of Unhoused Population Increase in California

Governor Newsom’s Behavioral Health Modernization Proposal seeks to reduce the number of unhoused people by focusing Mental Health Services Act funds on this population. However, California’s high number of people without homes is primarily a housing affordability and access issue, not a behavioral health crisis. Data shows that California’s Serious Mental Illness (SMI) subpopulation stays relatively stable while there are dramatic decreases and increases in the unhoused population.
