Welcome to the Adult System of Care Page

Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health provides an array of mental health and supportive services for clients, between the ages of 26 and 59, who live with serious mental illness. Mental health services are available through directly operated and contract agencies throughout the County.

The Recovery Model is the framework for all adult services and is based on the belief that adults diagnosed with a mental illness can lead productive lives by seeking and maintaining meaningful relationships through employment, education, or volunteer work, and participating fully in their community.

As a result of Mental Health Services Act (MHSA), additional services are available to create a full continuum of care for clients with a different level of mental health needs and recovery goals. Current Adult MHSA programs include Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) services, intensive services such as Full Service Partnerships (FSP) and Field Capable Clinical Services (FCCS), recovery focused Wellness Centers, Path and Client Run Services that are designed to support clients who are in later stages of recovery. Through MHSA, ASOC also provides specialty services to our Veterans through the Veterans and Loved Ones Recovery (VALOR) program.

Services typically provided in these agencies are: assessment, therapy, medication, case management/brokerage, crisis intervention, and other supportive services related to housing and employment. These services are intended to reduce psychiatric symptoms, increase independent functioning and self-reliance so that individuals can achieve the fullest and most productive life.

If you need immediate assistance or need to find services in your area, please contact the Adult System of Care information line at (213) 738-2868 between the hours of 8:00AM and 5:00PM, Monday through Friday. After hours you can call the ACCESS Center 24/7 Helpline at 1-800-854-7771.
