Model of Partnership with the Faith Community
Through the Hollywood Presbyterian Healthcare Partnership, the Department of Mental Health collaborates with the Hollywood Presbyterian Church to serve the homeless population of Los Angeles. Six years ago, the church sought the help of government agencies and community-based organizations to assist homeless individuals in the Hollywood area. Each week DMH provides mental health services to these individuals, as well as referrals to clinics. This partnership helps reduce stigma about mental illness, and improves the health of those served.
