The recently released MHSOAC Transformational Change Report is a snapshot of the work done from January through June, 2022 to provide insights and highlights of MHSOAC’s impact through their initiatives, committees, and community engagement. Key accomplishments include:
- Sponsorship of the Ken Burns documentary Hiding In Plain Sight: Youth Mental Illness to support the demystification and destigmatization of mental health through storytelling.
- The Commission evaluated the six Innovation Incubator projects resulting in extremely positive feedback from county officials, particularly on the technical assistance that was tailored to their precise needs.
- The Commission’s research on California Department of Public Health statistics successfully linked death record data to demographic and service characteristics of public mental health consumers who died by suicide.
