Full Service Partnership (FSP)
FSP is an intensive out-patient program for consumers experiencing:

- psychiatric inpatient hospitalizations
FSP offers field and clinic based services which include:

Homeless Outreach and Mobile Engagement (HOME)
HOME provides outreach, engagement and mental health treatment services to individuals experiencing homelessness and mental health conditions in collaboration with other Los Angeles County homeless outreach partners.
HOME specializes in engaging individuals that are gravely disabled (GD) or GD adjacent to ensure they are linked to the correct level of care.
The housing team in Service Area 3 is responsible for providing housing services and technical support to LACDMH’s directly operated programs and contracted clinics.
Another important component involves the tracking of time sensitive information of consumers who meet the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) qualifications. As a result, collaboration with Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA) and Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) is ongoing to ensure appropriate housing is secured and consumers can remain housed.
Furthermore, consultation about services and linkage to resources are provided to the public.
