From The Director

Our Department declares loudly, “None of us are well until all of us are well.”

The importance of our work is amplified when our communities face unpredictable, unprecedented and painful challenges. The trauma of racial injustice and the continued presence of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) impact each person’s mental wellbeing in different ways.

We stand in solidarity with those who are protesting against the continued killing of Black people and the systems and attitudes, like implicit biases, which actively and passively enable such atrocities. In alignment with these values, we have prioritized services that offer alternatives to law enforcement intervention and also expanded our online resources to include robust information on Race, Racial Equity and Civil Unrest.

The Department continues to offer resources and guides related to COVID-19. We also have a growing collection of resources organized by topic, including how to navigate grief and loss and public safety services. And our partnership with leading meditation app Headspace makes subscriptions free to all LA County residents through the end of the year.

The Department also consistently advocates on behalf of clients. Recent examples of our success include three bills Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law that were championed by LACDMH. And my most recent op-ed in the Los Angeles Times outlines opportunities for major reform and improvement in the way that we care for the most vulnerable among us.
