From The Director

As our community continues to navigate challenges related to COVID-19, evolving restrictions and guidelines, vaccine distribution and the long overdue racial reckoning, it is particularly important to care for your mental wellbeing and that of those around you. As Kobe Bryant said, “Everything negative – pressure, challenges – is an opportunity…to rise.”

Our LACDMH web resources are “always on,” from resources and guides related to COVID-19 and racial equity to support for veterans, plus an ever-growing collection of resources organized by topic. And our partnership with leading meditation app Headspace makes subscriptions free to all LA County residents.

I remain committed and excited about the opportunities for healing and mental health equity ahead. My recent op-ed co-authored with State Senator Howard Stern in the Los Angeles Times outlines opportunities for major reform and improvement in the way that we care for the most vulnerable among us.

We forge ahead with heart, grit, compassion and new insights – committed to creating a more fully connected County that supports the wellbeing of everyone.

Learn more about our mission at DMH to provide hope, recovery and wellbeing for everyone in Los Angeles County and beyond.
