Mental Health Commission

The Mental Health Commission is committed to supporting the Department of Mental Health’s vision:
"Partnering with clients, families and communities to create hope, wellness, and recovery."

State law requires that each county have a Mental Health Board or Commission. Members are appointed by the

Board of Supervisors for three-year terms. Those terms may be extended. Commissioners advise the Board of Supervisors and the Director of Mental Health on various aspects of local mental health programs.
