Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this policy analysis was to analyze the Mental Health Services Act of 2004 (MHSA) using research articles, state, and governmental documents. The study explored the beneficial effects on mental health services and the challenges of implementation. This study also explored the new programs and trends that derived directly from the MHSA funding. Innovative programs such as early intervention, prevention, training, and education were developed to meet the purposes of the MHSA. Closer examination of the act will foster further understanding of how the funds are being utilized and how it will continue to support specialized mental health program services.
