Prevention and Early Intervention Subcommittee

About the Subcommittee

The Commission’s Prevention and Early Intervention Subcommittee was formed in 2019 in response to the legislative directive provided in Senate Bill 1004 (Wiener). The Subcommittee, comprised of Commission Chair Mara Madrigal-Weiss and Vice Chair Mayra Alvarez, is charged with advancing prevention and early intervention for all Californians. Prevention and early intervention activities, including those funded by the Prevention and Early Intervention Component of the Mental Health Services Act, strive to reduce the negative outcomes that result from unmet mental health needs by providing services before or as soon as needs begin to outpace supports. By reviewing best practices and engaging a diverse range of community members and other experts, the subcommittee directs the Commission’s prevention and early intervention project. Project activities, including review of research literature, conversation with subject-matter experts and individuals with lived experience, and public-input events, began in late 2019 and continued through the COVID-19 pandemic after a virtual pivot. This project will result in a final report in mid-2022 outlining a strategic vision and actionable next steps for dramatically improving outcomes, reducing risks to wellbeing, and promoting support, care, and quality programs and services. Individuals interested in the work of the Prevention and Early Intervention Subcommittee are invited to attend a Subcommittee meeting or to contact us at mhsoac@mhsoac.ca.gov.
