LACDMH Strategic Plan 2020-2030

From The Director

As my sixth Mental Health Awareness month with LACDMH comes to a close, I had hoped to focus on our work together and share my deep support for Dr. Lisa Wong who has been appointed as Acting Director by the Board of Supervisors. And while there have been numerous accomplishments for us to celebrate and while Lisa is absolutely the right person to take the baton, I cannot communicate in my most authentic voice about anything other than recent events in this country that are tearing us apart as individuals and disconnecting us as a people.

The entirely horrific loss of life to gun violence in Uvalde, Buffalo, and Laguna Woods in the past few weeks as well as the string of tragedies before them literally shake our collective humanity and morality to the core. These ignorant, hate-driven events traumatize individuals, neighborhoods, regions, and our nation as a whole, leaving in their wake broken families, enraged communities, and feelings of hopelessness and helplessness in our society.
