From The Director

The importance of our work is even more apparent in times like these when the community faces unpredictable and unprecedented challenges. The outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) impacts each person’s mental wellbeing in different ways, and that’s why we continue to expand the wide range of resources available to residents.

My recent op-ed in the Los Angeles Times outlines what the Department is doing in response to COVID-19 and what resources are available to help.

Additionally, we have created a new set of guides in multiple languages on how to navigate the effects of COVID-19. We partnered with leading meditation app Headspace to make subscriptions free to all LA County residents through the end of the year. And event recordings are available to watch and share from WE RISE 2020, our spotlight on wellbeing and healing through art, music and creative expression.
