Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) recommending the Board approve Agreement for Services 019-S1711 with El Dorado Hills Community Vision, Inc., to provide mental health services for eligible individuals, thus ensuring HHSA meets the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) program and funding requirements of the MHSA Plan’s “Primary Intervention Project.” El Dorado Hills Community Vision, Inc. was recognized by the MHSA stakeholders as one of three contractors to provide the services.
