Humboldt County Mental Health Services Act Three Year Program and Expenditure Plan, Community Participation and Feedback Survey
The Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) of Humboldt County wants your ideas on how to strengthen its mental health programs to better serve you and your community. What would you like to see included as part of the work over the next three years, considering limited resources? Also, what are some new or innovative ideas you’d like Humboldt County to consider?

This survey is part of a larger community planning process that also includes community meetings throughout Humboldt County from November 2019 to January 2020. If you would like information about these meetings, or if you want to receive further information about the planning process, please send an email to MHSAComments@co.humboldt.ca.us or call (707) 441-3770 with your name and contact information.

The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete. All questions are optional, and you can leave questions blank if you do not want to respond. This survey is anonymous.

Thank you for your help with this effort!
