Stakeholder Advocacy

Stakeholder Contracts Project – Advocacy Request for Proposals (RFPs)

The MHSA specifies, at the state and local levels, that transparent and collaborative processes be used to determine the mental health needs, priorities, and services for California mental health consumers. Stakeholder advocacy contracts administered by the MHSOAC are one means of ensuring that.

Beginning in 2016/17, the MHOSAC will award advocacy contracts through a competitive bid process, as directed by the Legislature.  This process was formed by gathering feedback and input from stakeholders, current contractors' and other interested parties.  The ongoing goal is to provide a transparent experience that is informed by those currently involved in statewide advocacy efforts.
