The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Two-Spirit (LGBTQI2-S) Underserved Cultural Communities (UsCC) subcommittee was established under the Mental Health Services Act for the purpose of increasing mental health access and to produce stakeholder priorities which will advise DMH’s action planning toward development and improvement of its services and partnerships to better engage underserved and marginalized cultural and ethnic communities in Los Angeles County.

The LGBTQI2-S UsCC subcommittee provides DMH with community-driven and culturally specific capacity building project recommendations and/or project concepts for implementation to increase mental health access, awareness, promotion, and decrease stigma with the ultimate goal to reduce cultural and ethnic disparities in access to care and service delivery.

For FY 2018/2019, the LGBTQI2-S UsCC subcommittee would like to implement The Indigenous Pride LA Project.
