Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Issue Resolution Process
The Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health is committed to resolving issues related to the implementation and ongoing operations of its programs. The resolution of issues associated with MHSA-funded programs is part of the department’s overall issue resolution process.
We strive to address and resolve issues as quickly as possible, with an emphasis on increasing service quality. If an MHSA planning, implementation, or operations issue cannot be resolved by the MHSA Issue Resolution & Oversight Division, it will be reviewed by the Department’s appointed Community Leadership Team (CLT).
