Santa Cruz County Mental Health Advisory Board

The Santa Cruz County Mental Health Advisory Board provides advice to the governing body (Board of Supervisors) and the Director of Behavioral Health. They provide oversight and monitoring of the local mental health system as well as advocate for persons with mental illness.

A primary responsibility of the Mental Health Advisory Board (MHAB) is to review and evaluate the community’s mental health needs, services, facilities, and special problems. The regular MHAB meetings provide a means for Board action to fulfill its purpose. The MHAB chair presides over meetings and prepares the agenda in collaboration with mental health staff. MHAB members may provide items for the agenda to the secretary of the MHAB at least two weeks in advance of the meeting. These meetings are open to the public.
