LACDMH Strategic Plan 2020-2030

Message From The Director

Lisa Wong, Psy.D., Sr. Deputy Director

988, the easy-to-remember phone number for people experiencing mental health-related distress, officially launched in July, offering 24/7 access to trained crisis counselors for anyone with thoughts of suicide, or a mental health or substance abuse crisis. Assembly Bill 988, The Miles Hall Lifeline & Suicide Prevention Act, passed the California legislature with bipartisan support and was just recently signed by Governor Gavin Newsom. The adoption of AB 988 will transform the way behavioral health crisis assistance is provided to anyone who needs it, and the state will be well on its way to delivering the responsive continuum of care that our most vulnerable citizens deserve. In L.A. County, this translates to reinforcing 988 call center services while continuing to work hard to increase the number of psychiatric mobile response teams (PMRT) and stabilization services to ensure that people get the kind of care they need, when they need it.
