Full Service Partnership (FSP)

FSP is an intensive out-patient program for consumers experiencing:

  • institutionalization
  • homelessness
  • incarceration and/or
  • psychiatric inpatient hospitalizations


FSP offers field and clinic based services which include:

  • 24/7 assessment and crisis services
  • counseling

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.

Countywide HOME Team Referral Form  


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.

Services include short-term, evidence-based crisis and early intervention approaches such as:

  • crisis-oriented recovery services
  • seeking safety and
  • mental health integration programs

Psychiatric Mobile Response Teams (PMRT)

PMRT consists of DMH licensed clinical staff assigned to a specific Service Area in Los Angeles County. Teams have legal authority per Welfare and Institutions Code 5150 and 5585 to initiate applications for evaluation of involuntary detention of individuals determined to be at risk of harming themselves or others or who are unable to provide food, clothing, or shelter as a result of a mental disorder.
