The purpose of this policy analysis was to analyze the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) of 2004 using research articles and state and governmental documents. The analysis explored the expansion of mental health services and the challenges of implementation. The programs that were developed to meet the specific needs of the MHSA included early intervention, prevention, curriculum development, education, training, and community services. A thorough examination of the act provided an understanding of how the funds are distributed and how the MHSA will continue to support specialized mental health program services. The information presented in this policy analysis focused on children and youth and in detailing the services they received through the MHSA.
