The Mental Health Services Act, enacted by California voters in November 2004, initiated growth and transformation of the public mental health system by introducing a more culturally competent system that promotes wellness and recovery for persons with severe and persistent mental illnesses. This study examines quality-of-life outcomes for adults receiving services with Turning Point of Central California’s North County Mobile Unit, a contracted agency of Tulare County funded by the Mental Health Services Act. A quantitative method was utilized to explore and document program members’ experiences and quality-of-life outcomes after participation in and receipt of services following the MHSA’s Wellness and Recovery Model treatment modalities over a 1-year period. This initial analysis reveals a positive impact of MHSA-funded services on quality-of-life outcomes and recidivism rates of clients of the North County Mobile Unit; however, further research is warranted for substantiation of these findings.
